Summary
<b>From the <i>New York Times</i>-bestselling author of <i>A Gentleman in Moscow</i>, a “sharply stylish” (Boston Globe) novel of a young woman in post-Depression era New York who suddenly finds herself thrust into high society.</b><br /><br />On the last night of 1937, twenty-five-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, happens to sit down at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a year-long journey into the upper echelons of New York society—where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve.<br /><br />With its sparkling depiction of New York’s social strata, its intricate imagery and themes, and its immensely appealing characters,&#xa0;<i>Rules of Civility</i> won the hearts of readers and critics alike.
