Rules of Civility


In Rules of Civility, Amor Towles opens the door for you, in a very gentlemanly way – I might add – to Manhattan.  He ushers you right into the late 1930’s and into the life of his heroine Katey Content and her friend Eve Ross. When they met a man named Tinker Grey in the final moments of 1937, everything – for them – changed. The unfolding of their entanglement is powerful and beautiful and it takes you on a wonderful adventure. Towles whisks you around Manhattan, weaving real life and fiction into his wistfully and carefully told story.



The eating is good in Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In fact, two of the cities oldest establishments are on the list.


Truman Capote drops the names of two hotels in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and for book club travelers they 're perfectly located to just about everything you’d want to see.
