Summary
A Gentleman In Moscow immerses us in another era, drawn elegantly, with the story of Count Alexander Rostov. / When, in 1922, the Count, thirty years of age, is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, he is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding. Unexpectedly, the Count's reduced circumstances provide him entry to a much larger world of emotional discovery as he forges friendships with the hotel's other denizens, including a willful actress, a shrewd Kremlinite, a gregarious American, and a temperamental chef. But when fate puts the life of a young girl in his hands suddenly, he must draw on all his ingenuity to protect the future she so deserves. This singular 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
