Book Reviews: A Gentleman in Moscow soars

“How delightful that in an era as crude as ours this finely composed novel stretches out with old-World elegance.” —The Washington Post A Gentleman in Moscow shows what one can accomplish in a crumbling world with the right attitude about changing fortunes. The hero of the book, Count Alexander Rostov finds his fortune reversed when the Bolsheviks take over and he is relegated to house arrest in ” The Metropol, the famed Moscow hotel where movie stars and Russian royalty hobnob, where Bolsheviks plot revolutions and intellectuals discuss the merits of contemporary Russian writers, where spies spy, thieves thieve and the danger of twentieth century Russia lurks outside its marbled walls. <iframe style=”width:120px;height:240px;” marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ src=”//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ss&ref=as_ss_li_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=globemiamitim-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=0670026190&asins=0670026190&linkId=014c07626df743bde0a1b7ae6b5fbdbb&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true”></iframe> No matter the circumstances, the Count displays the wisdom and manners of his station in life as a gentleman and, in doing so, gives much to his fellow travelers whether they are the hotel staff, a passer-by or the ruling class du-jour.   “After all, what can a first impression tell us about someone we’ve just met for a minute in the lobby of a hotel?

New Attraction in Globe, Arizona designed to Haunt Visitors

All the pounding and sawing inside the historic jail in Globe over the month of August has raised questions about the possibility of sinister happenings in these parts. Tales of crazed zombies desperately scratching at windows and the sounds of unearthly moans emanating from the ghostly throats of long-gone prisoners have caused concern among the local folks, and they are demanding answers. Since Sept. 28, citizens have taken to lining up in front of the historic jail house on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at sun-down so they can see the goings-on for themselves.
