Beach Reads: A Gentleman in Moscow

Beach Reads A Gentleman in Moscow

After two and a half years in hardcover as a New York Times Best Seller, A Gentleman in Moscow, is finally in paperback and continues to be a best seller.

In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin.  He has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors.
