October Title: Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

This rhapsodic tribute to a bygone era conjures up mesmerizing images of 1930s New York.  Two worlds collide on New Year's Eve 1937, and three lives will never be the same.  For Katey Kontent and Eve Ross, two working gals out on the town, a chance encounter with patrician banker Tinker Grey sets into motion a series of events causing far-reaching consequences.  As Towles explores the seemingly random ways in which both choice and chance can impact the future, Katey, Eve, and Tinker each face a dark night of the soul, during which fates are twisted, reshaped, and realigned.  Discerning readers will draw parallels between Towles and the ominously ironic Edith Wharton while relishing the fact that the snappy dialogue and descriptive prose are wrapped in a compelling narrative.
