Rules of Civility

By Amor Towles
Published by the Penguin Group
First published in the United States of America by
Viking Penguin, 2011

On New Year's Eve, 1937, Katey Kontent's life changes when she meets Tinker Grey.  That's all you need to know.  Really.  This book is so beautifully written, once you start it you will be unable to put it down. 

You will be caught up in the New York of 1938 and the complicated, gorgeous characters Amor Towles has created:  Katey Kontent, Tinker Grey, Dicky Vanderwhile, Eve Ross, and Wallace Wolcott. 

Buy it.  Read it.  Love it.
