- In a break from reading books over 500 years old, I spent most of today reading @amortowles’ Rules of Civility, which is excellent! Released in 2011; basically yesterday.
A chance encounter with a handsome banker in a Greenwich Village jazz bar on New Year's Eve 1938 catapults witty Wall Street secretary Katey Kontent into the upper echelons of New York society, where she befriends a shy multi-millionaire, an Upper East Side ne'er-do-well and a single-minded widow. A first novel. Reprint.
