THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES and NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFROM THE AUTHOR OF A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW, THE LINCOLN HIGHWAY AND RULES OF CIVILITY'A knockout . . .

Table for Two is a winner'NEW YORK TIMES'There is no better writer working today'CHRIS CLEAVE'He makes it all seem effortless'TANA FRENCH'A gem of a book that springs delights and surprises on every page'JEFFREY ARCHER'There is a great deal to relish in Table for Two . . .

If you take only one book on holiday this summer, you couldn’t ask for a better literary capsule wardrobe'THE TIMESMillions 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 Towles’s novel Rules of Civility, the indomitable Evelyn Ross leaves New York City in September 1938 with the intention of returning home to Indiana.

But as her train pulls into Chicago, where her parents are waiting, she instead extends her ticket to Los Angeles. 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.

Praise for The Lincoln Highway:"A rollicking cross-country adventure, rife with unforgettable characters, vivid scenery and suspensethat will keep readers flying through the pages." Time"Elegantly constructed and compulsively readable . . .

hitch onto this delightful tour de force and you'll be pulled straight through to the end, helpless against the inventive exuberance of Towles' storytelling." NPR"Wise and wildly entertaining . . .

Towles goes all in on the kind of episodic, exuberant narrativehaywire found in myth or Homeric epic." The New York Times Book ReviewInstant New York Times bestseller, May 2024
