Recently I read Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. A great debut situated in New York with loads of references to the classics, beautiful 30’s tunes, with plenty of martini’s and horrible blurbs on the pretty cover.
Rules of Civility clearly is Booktunes material as it holds so many good tunes that, like author Amor Towles states on his website, shape the backdrop to the story of Katey, Evie, Tinker, Wallace and Anne. New York, music, cool story, a novel that is full of love for literature, what more can you expect from a book? Beautiful prose & thoughts to take with you on the train.[audio http://www.2001.net/Booktunes/Blog_Autumn_In_New_York.mp3]
