Re: Gentleman in Moscow
Thanks for the heads-up, Max. I will be sure now not to make that mistake if I ever get my hands on A Gentleman in Moscow, which - due to my reliance on regional library system inventory - may not be for a long time. I checked last night and found every copy of Towle in the system is out and with a waiting list. I had no idea. Same for George Saunders, I notice. Has anyone here read 'Lincoln in the Bardo?'
