From the bestselling author of A Gentleman in Moscow, The Lincoln Highway and Rules of Civility

Millions of Amor Towles fans are in for a treat as he shares some of his shorter fiction - six stories based in New York City and a novella set in Golden Age Hollywood.

The New York stories, most of which take place around the year 2000, consider the fateful consequences that can spring from brief encounters, and the delicate mechanics of compromise that operate at the heart of modern marriages.

In Towles's novel Rules of Civility, the indomitable Evelyn Ross leaves New York City in September 1938 with the intention of returning home to Indiana. But as her train pulls in to Chicago, where her parents are waiting, she instead extends her ticket to Los Angeles. Told from seven points of view, Eve in Hollywood describes how Eve crafts a new future for herself - and others - in a noirish tale that takes us through the movie sets, bungalows and dive bars of Los Angeles.

Written with his signature wit, humour and sophistication, Table for Two is another glittering addition to Towles's canon of stylish and transporting fiction.
