Story | Sep 21, 2012 | 4:17 PMEvery novel worth reading has a line or two that hooks the reader in good.

The narrator is describing her roommate, a young woman named Eve, raised in Indiana and newly on the prowl in 1930s New York City. "On the occasional rainy Wednesday, when Bendel's was crowded with the wives of the well-to-do, Eve would put on her best skirt and jacket, ride the elevator to the second floor and stuff silk stockings into her panties," Rubin read aloud to the more than 80 customers gathered recently to meet the author, Amor Towles. "And when we were late with the rent, she did her part: She stood at Mrs. Martingale's door and shed the unsalted tears of the Great Lakes."
