Rules of Civility by Amor Towles


 Reading the back cover was like reading a list of my favourite things – jazz, 1930’s, New York City and cocktails. 

 With shades of The Great Gatsby, Amor Towles smoothly leads us through a ‘rags to riches’ and back to rags again story.

 This is a classic American dream story – the search for happiness and freedom, the meaning of life and the art of how to make a good martini!

Pop on your flapper dress, slip an olive into your martini and let this wonderful novel take you on a very New York journey.
