Shoshana, May 31, 2010 (view all comments by Shoshana)
There's a lot of nice language in this 1937 novel by Kurban Said. This is a pseudonym for Lev Nussimbaum--or is it? Though the novel stands nicely on its own, half the fun is the mystery of its authorship.

The novel itself is about Ali Khan, an Azeri Muslim, and his love, Nino Kipiani, a Christian Georgian girl. Their relationship is emblematic of both the fruits and strain of the meeting of Europe and Asia. Said does a good job of beginning with a simple narrative from the perspective of a youth and gradually increasing the complexity as he ages and as his city of Baku, Azerbaijan is pulled into the Bolshevik Revolution.

Brilliantly written love story by Kurban Said whose real name is Lev Nussimbaum. A love story between a Muslim boy and Georgian Christian girl shorty before Russian revolution. Nice and simple style yet profound, makes me want to go to Baku.
