A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

When, in 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat
by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count 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 has never worked a day in his life, and must
now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian
history is unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced
circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional
discovery.
