He can't leave his hotel. You won't want to.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Civility--a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel.

In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and 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 are unfolding outside the hotel's doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, 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. 

Pick up your copy of this book today at the Brainerd Public Library front desk by asking for the Books, Burgers, and Brews once the title has been selected.  The books at the library are first come first serve and we have 25 copies set aside for this event.  Participants that use the library for the book selection are asked to return the book once they have completed reading so someone else will be able to check the title out. Other options are listing to the book on audio, or purchasing on line.

 

Please RSVP for this event as space is limited.
