Set during the Soviet Union’s turbulent early 1920s and after, A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW tells the story of Count Alexander Rostov.

You may have a chance to read this novel before March 10, but even if you don’t read it you can enjoy hearing a discussion led by people who have been at the Metropol Hotel, eaten at Count Rostov’s restaurant, or enjoyed the atmosphere of the Kremlin and the Bolshoi Theater. You can also find much interesting information on line about this novel if you do not have a chance to read it in its entirety.
