Amor Towles’ Rules of Ci­vil­ity is set in the jazz clubs and brown­stone walk-ups of 1930s New York. A young woman strad­dles the world of friend­ship, love and post-suf­frage fe­male “be­ing ness” to un­der­stand her­self. Flirt­ing with sen­ti­men­tal­ity but never suc­cumb­ing to it, the book may have you Googling the am­bigu­ously named Towles and won­der, “A man writ­ing like a woman?” Ir­re­sistible.
