«Delightful»

People

«There’s more than a mischievous glint of irony in these scintillating, sly stories from Towles. Set in new York and L.A. the city locations are fertile territory for a writer a penchant for power plays between good sports and the unscrupulous machinations of chancers and con men… the collection closes with the brilliant Eve in Hollywood, a noirish tale of blackmail and blaggards starring Evelyn Ross, who has all the glamour and guts of an on- screen heroine. Wonderful»

Daily Mail

«Storytelling of the highest order»

Irish Times

«Masterful storytelling ... a delectable collection»

Woman

«Aficionados of Amor Towles 's carefully crafted fiction will be thrilled by this latest collection of elegantly presented short stories along with a novella. The tales focus on vignettes of turn-of-millennium New York life, while the longer Eve in Hollywood sees the reappearance of Rules of Civility’s inimitable Evelyn Ross in 1930s Los Angeles. The recent adaptation A Gentleman in Moscow has raised the author's profile to new heights, and long-standing admirers and new readers alike will take great delight in this entertaining collection. A new novel soon please, Mr Towles»

Observer

«If you only take one book on holiday... Make it Amor Towles’ short stories… Towles has a genius for immersive scene-setting, and most of Table for Two, a collection of six short stories and a novella, feels more mythically New York than a Woody Allen storyboard painted by Edward Hopper… There is a great deal to relish in Table for Two... The collection is varied but hangs so well together. If you take only one book on holiday this summer, you couldn’t ask for a better literary capsule wardrobe»

The Times

«A knockout collection . . . Sharp-edged satire deceptively wrapped like a box of Neuhaus chocolates, Table for Two is a winner»

New York Times

«Amor Towles reminds you why books still do it best. Joyous, discreet and a pleasure to read, each timeless story reconnects you with your own humanity. Every perfect sentence leaves you nodding in wonder. There is no better writer working today»

Chris Cleave

«He makes it all seem effortless»

Tana French

«Superb ... This may be Towles' best book yet. Each tale is as satisfying as a master chef's main course, filled with drama, wit, erudition and, most of all, heart»
