The bestselling author of “A Gentleman in Moscow” and “Rules of Civility,” Amor Towles presents a richly detailed and sharply drawn collection of stories, including a novella featuring one of his most beloved characters
Millions of Amor Towles fans are in for a treat as he shares some of his shorter fiction: six stories based in New York City and a novella set in Golden Age Hollywood.

The New York stories, most of which take place around the year 2000, consider the fateful consequences that can spring from brief encounters and the delicate mechanics of compromise that operate at the heart of modern marriages.

In “Eve in Hollywood,” Towles returns to story of the indomitable Eveyln Ross – a beloved character from his critically-acclaimed, bestselling debut novel “Rules of Civility.” Told from seven points of view, “Eve in Hollywood” describes how Eve crafts a new future for herself—and others—in a noirish tale that takes us through the movie sets, bungalows, and dive bars of Los Angeles.

Written with his signature wit, humor, and sophistication, “Table for Two” is another glittering addition to Towles’s canon of stylish and transporting fiction.

Amor Towles is the author of the New York Times bestsellers “The Lincoln Highway,” “A Gentleman in Moscow,” and “Rules of Civility.” His novels have collectively sold millions of copies and been translated into more than thirty-five languages.
