In 1922 Russia, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol hotel. Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and an elegantly drawn era, this 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.
The new novel from the author of "Rules of Civility".
