On 21 June 1922 Count Alexander Rostov is escorted out of the Kremlin and through the elegant doors of the Hotel Metropol. Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal; the Count has been sentenced to house arrest. From the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of RULES OF CIVILITY; this is a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend his life inside a luxury hotel. On 21 June 1922 Count Alexander Rostov – recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew; member of the Jockey Club; Master of the Hunt – is escorted out of the Kremlin; across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol. But instead of being taken to his usual suite; he is led to an attic room with a window the size of a chessboard. Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal; the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. While Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval; the Count; stripped of the trappings that defined his life; is forced to question what makes us who we are. And with the assistance of a glamorous actress; a cantankerous chef and a very serious child; Rostov unexpectedly discovers a new understanding of both pleasure and purpose.
