Table for Two with Amor Towles

26 May @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Table for Two with Amor Towles

Mr B’s are very excited to announce that Amor Towles, author of the blockbuster best-selling A Gentleman in Moscow, will be discussing his new book, A Table For Two

Amor’s novels have been huge favourites among the staff and customers at Mr B’s. A Gentleman in Moscow – soon to become a Paramount+ TV series starring Ewan McGregor – is one of our biggest ever selling books, and we also loved The Rules of Civility and The Lincoln Highway

Now he returns with A Table For Two, a collection of six New York-set stories paired with a Golden Age Hollywood novella, all filled with great characters and stylish prose. 

About the book:

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.
