An Evening with Amor Towles

About An Evening with Amor Towles

Besides the obvious prestige of writing three NYT bestsellers - Rules of Civility, A Gentleman in Moscow, and The Lincoln Highway - Amor has and continues to be a bookseller and reader favourite in Edinburgh.

It is therefore a delight to be hosting Amor to celebrate publication of his latest story collection, Table for Two. Join us this Spring in showing our admiration for this wonderful author and his fantastic new book.

Table For Two
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 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.

About Amor Towles:
Amor Towles is the author of New York Times bestsellers Rules of Civility, A Gentleman in Moscow, and The Lincoln Highway. The three novels have collectively sold more than five million copies and have been translated into more than thirty-five languages. Towles lives in Manhattan with his wife and two children.
