Answers To Go with Susan Smith: A librarian's favorite book

Susan Smith- Daily Record Columnist

Q: Did you have a favorite novel in 2016?

A: People do often ask the library staff for book recommendations. Most years, this would be a difficult question for me because I read a lot of fiction and I like a lot of what I read.

 This year, I loved “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towle.

 In 1914, Count Alexander Rostov escaped to Paris when it became clear that those of his class who remained in Revolutionary Russia were doomed.
