Rules of Civility: A Novel by Amor Towles: historical fiction set in New York City where the story gave me a vision of the intersection of working women and the world-weary wealthy! Better than The Great Gatsby!
Against the wishes of his family, David, a college student, takes a summer job at a run-down family resort in a dying English town. It was at this very resort that David's biological father died fifteen years earlier.
A reimagining of the "Twelve Dancing Princesses" traces the story of a family of flappers who work in a speakeasy until their suspicious father decides to marry them off, prompting a confrontation with a bootlegger from the eldest sister's past.
