Lit Wits Book Group

Baraboo Public Library, 230 Fourth Avenue, Baraboo, WI

The January book selection for mature readers is A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel, by Amor Towles. When Count Alexander Rostov was a child, his guardian advised him, "...Adversity presents itself in many forms; and if a man does not master his circumstances then he is bound to be mastered by them."

When Rostov is ordered by a Bolshevik tribunal to spend the rest of his life in a luxury hotel in the heart of Moscow, he must find a way to master his circumstances and remain "a man of superior breeding, manners, education, wit, and charm."
