Publisher's Summary

A Gentleman in Moscow recounts the story of Count Alexander Rostov. In 1922, on the heels of the Russian Revolution, the count is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal and sentenced to permanent house arrest in Moscow's grand Hotel Metropol. In something of a literary feat, as the count's story progresses over three decades, the walls of the Metropol seem to expand, rather than close in around listeners.

Brimming with humor and wit, an unforgettable cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this remarkable novel casts a spell as it relates the count's endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose. Amor Towles joins us for an evening of conversation with Liesl Schillinger on this thrilling new work. With a reading by Tony Award-winning actor Boyd Gaines.

poor audio

Audio captured by a person in the back of large room. Can barely hear. Very disappointing. Also, the author and interviewer refused to talk about certain details for fear of spoiling the story!? It's a book club!

You can hardly hear it

I was excited to hear this after I finished A Gentleman In Moscow but it sounds like the recorder was 20' away from the speakers and I couldn't hear most of it. I'll have to dig out the headphones and crank up the volume I guess.

it was just an interview

Expecting the book A Gentleman in
Moscow, i was very disappointed to hear a poor quality very badly produced interview.
Please refund my credit, and put the real book on my wish list.
