Rules of Civility

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!

Naming your band after the river of transiting souls is cool when you’re 20, but it takes on a decidedly ominous edge when you’re 60-ish and you’ve lost your drummer to alcohol abuse, your founding bassist is HIV positive and one of your defining songs is titled “Come Sail Away.” And so it was with no little sense of urgency that band founders J.Y. Young, Chuck Panozzo and early add-on rock idol Tommy Shaw took the stage.
