A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

On 21 June 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is escorted out of the Kremlin,and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol. Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. But instead of his usual suite, he must now live in an attic room while Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval.
Can a life without luxury be the richest of all?

‘Charming … shows that not all books about Russian aristocrats have to be full of doom and nihilism’ The Times, Books of the Year
