Product description

Review

Impossibly glamorous . . . Towles conjures up vintage New York so marvellously that it made me feel nostalgic for a place I've never been to. (The Times)

Achingly stylish...witty, slick production, replete with dark intrigue, period details, and a suitably Katharine Hepburn-like heroine (Guardian)

The summer's must-read: gripping and beautiful (Sunday Times)

Terrific. A smart, witty, charming dry-martini of a novel (David Nicholls, author of One Day)

This is a flesh-and-blood tale you believe in, with fabulous period detail. It's all too rare to find a fun, glamorous, semi-literary tale to get lost in... While you're lost in the whirl of silk stockings, fur and hip flasks, all you care about is what Katey Kontent does next (Viv Groskop, Observer)

Irresistible... A cross between Dorothy Parker and Holly Golightly, Katey Kontent is a priceless narrator in her own right - the brains of a bluestocking with the legs of a flapper and the mores of Carrie Bradshaw (Elena Seymenliyska, Telegraph)

Because who doesn't want to be transported to Thirties Manhattan? (Lucy Mangan)

Jazz-age New York is the setting for martinis and girls on the make in Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. As glamorous as it is gut-wrenching, this is the summer's must-read (ELLE)

...my book of the year. If the unthinkable happened and I could never read another new work of fiction in 2011, I'd simply re-read this sparkling, stylish book, with yet another round of martinis as dry as the author's wit (Jackie McGlone, Herald)

Set against a soundtrack of clinking glasses and saxophones, the book is a love letter to the city and the era, so confidently written it instantly plunges you into Thirties New York. Towles creates a narrative that sparkles with sentences so beautiful you'll stop and re-read them. A delicious and memorable novel that will leave you wistful - and desperate for a martini (Stylist)

Book Description

The first novel by the author of The Gentleman of Moscow, Rules of Civility is a witty, elegant fairytale of late 30's New York for fans of Breakfast at Tiffany's and F. Scott Fitzgerald.
