A Russian Gentleman. At the center of this chronicle of Russian provincial life in the reign of Catherine the Great stands the patriarchal figure of the author's grandfather, Stepan Mikhailovich. A man of great natural dignity, imbued with respect for tradition and love /5.

The book's title refers to Stepan, a Russian gentleman, landowner, who is also a patriarch of a family, one of whom is his grandson, the book's author. The book examines Russian culture and family life, potraying the pride, illiteracy, and male chauvinism that dominated it/5(3).

Acclaimed for his realistic prose, Sergei Aksakov (–) captured the essence of Russian life in his trilogy of reminiscences—A Russian Gentleman, Years of Childhood, and A Russian Schoolboy.

He also wrote literary sketches, and appreciations of hunting and fishing/5(13). The gentleman of the title is Alexander Rostov, a distinguished count and “unrepentant aristocrat” who in is punished for his political poetry (and history of dueling) with a life sentence of house arrest in Moscow’s Metropol : Ryan Vlastelica.

A Gentleman in Moscow is an amazing story because it manages to be a little bit of everything. There’s fantastical romance, politics, espionage, parenthood and poetry. The book is technically historical fiction, but you would be just as accurate calling it a thriller or a love story.” —Bill Gates “The book is like a : Penguin Publishing Group.

That one scene aside, A Gentleman in Moscow is a fun, clever, and surprisingly upbeat look at Russian history through the eyes of one man. At the beginning of the book, Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov is sentenced to spend his life under house arrest in Moscow’s Metropol Hotel/5(K).

Essentially, A Gentleman in Moscow takes the shape of a diamond on its side. From the moment the Count passes through the hotel’s revolving doors, the narrative begins opening steadily outward. Over the next two hundred pages detailed descriptions accumulate of people, rooms, objects, memories.
