Rules of Civility,

Amor Towles

This glamorous period piece transports you to 1930's Manhattan and into the lives of two typists at a NYC law firm. The two friends, sick of monotony, find themselves caught up in the world of a billionaire. While one woman finds
high-society appetizing, the other, Katey, treads lightly to see if all that glitters really is gold.

Not only does this novel give you a glimpse behind history's curtain of post-Depression era New York, with its fancy cars and sultry speakeasies, you see what the lifestyle of the upper class can do to someone not ready for their close up.

  • Love a good period piece
