From the rat-a-tat-tat Hepburn/Tracy dialogue to the languid woman on a chaise lounge on the cover, Rules of Civility by Amor Towles (Viking Adult, $27) is a delicious depiction of 1938 Manhattan. Boardinghouse-dwelling secretaries, charming bankers, Greenwich Village jazz clubs, parties in the Hamptons and martini-swilling in brown Bentleys are all part of the complex, stylistic but character-driven environment created in this deft debut novel. I can’t wait for Towles’ next one!
