Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

Beautifully observed human behaviour

“New York was a city where the improbable would be made probable, the implausible plausible, and the impossible possible”

Young George Washington's 'Rules of Civility' transposed to the social climbers of 1930s New York. Beautifully observed human behaviour from characters that literally jump of the page thanks to the elegant pen of Amor Towles
