“The Rules of Civility”, by Amor Towles Book Reviews

From the author of “A Gentleman in Moscow” comes another great read (and a period piece too yay!!).¬† The consensus at my book club was that we wished he had more books so we could read them all. Apparently he used to be a Wall St stockbroker and he quit to be a writer. That works out well- one less stockbroker and one more great author.

This book follows Katie, a young single woman in 1938 New York as she has all those formidable¬† encounters that one does in their 20’s. The book has a wonderful sense of place and brings to life everything from basement jazz bars to the horribly sexist typing pools of the day.

Would I recommend? Yes, absolutely- no caveats
