It’s worth a shot in the dark.
A few months ago, I saw a novel on display in a few book stores. There is a picture of a woman on the cover, and I believe she is lying in a canoe. She looks like she’s from the 1920s or 30s (very Fitzgerald-style).
I believe the premise is about a woman who moves to New York during the 30s (or 20s?) It looked really interesting but I didn’t buy it at the time because I was backed up on books to read, and of course I didn’t write down the title or the author. All I remember is that the author’s name was very unique. Short, and definitely not American sounding.
Now that I’m ready for a new book I can’t find it or remember anything else about it.
UPDATE: Nevermind, I found it after an extensive book cover search on Barnes & Noble’s website.
It was called Rules of Civility, by Amor Towles:
