Table for Two

By Amor Towles

A Highly Enjoyable Reading Experience



Amor Towles, author of A Gentleman in Moscow (2016) and The Rules of Civility (2011), has released one of the most anticipated books of 2024.  Table for Two is a series of six short stories and a novella stemming from Towles’ own experiences and imagination.


All of Towles's short stories in Table for Two are delightful and profound. Reading them was like enjoying a fabulous meal, with each story serving as a different course. After each course, you’ll want to pause to think, take a breath, and savor his beautiful word choice and the thought-provoking themes. Towles’ writing is simply delicious, and the novella featuring Evelyn Ross (Rules of Civility) was a particularly enjoyable dessert, complete with whipped cream and a cherry on top.

These captivating stories are historical in nature, set around the turn of the century. According to Towles in a recent interview, two of the characters in Table for Two will appear in one of his yet-to-be-published novels. I can hardly wait.

Thanks to Netgalley and Penguin Group Viking for an advance reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
