Der Muslim Ali Khan Schirwanschir und die georgische Prinzessin Nino Kipiani absolvieren kurz vor dem Ausbruch des ersten Weltkriegs ein russiches Gymnasium in Baku. Trotz gegensätzlichen Weltanschauungen, unterschiedlichem Glauben und verschiedener Herkunft verlieben sich die beiden. Doch ein Verrat, althergebrachte Traditionen und der Lauf der historischen Ereignisse erschweren eine in Aussicht genommene Eheschließung...
"Ali und Nino" ist das aserbaidschanische Gegenstück zu "Romeo und Julia". Doch das Werk ist mehr als ein fesselnder Liebesroman eingebettet ins Spannungsfeld zwischen Orient und Okzident. Der Autor führt den Leser an den Rand Europas und begleitet ihn durch die hierzulande fast unbekannte Geschichte Aserbaidschans. Er schildert die Entwicklung der Region in einer spannungsgeladenen Zeit, nämlich vom Außenposten des zaristischen Russlands, einem Schmelztiegel der Kulturen Asiens und Europas, über den ersten Weltkrieg und die Februar- und Oktoberrevolution mit dem damit einhergehenden Aufflammen des Nationalismus bishin zur Gründung der ersten unabhängigen, säkularen Republik Aserbaidschan und deren blutigem Untergang.
A marvellous story that takes the reader to Azerbaijan, where Asia meets Europe. From 1937 thie book was written by an Azerbaijan exile and is set in World War One. Ali Khan is a Muslim Azerbaijani of Persian origin, Nino a Christian Georgian who looks to Europe. Here is the first tension in the book, between these two cultures which eventually their parents accept. There are idyllic happy scenes of their life in the mountains but cultural tensions resurface when they have to escape to Persia. Returning to Baku and Azerbaijan they settle into a life that tries to straddle Asia and Europe but this is eventually confounded. A moving novel full of colourful imagery and passion. A great read.
There is perhaps no better introduction to the Caucasus than reading the fictional “Ali and Nino” (1937), by Kurban Said (pseudonym for Lev Nussimbaum). Part touching love story, part description of the contrasting cultures in this part of the world, set against the outbreak of the First World War and the Russian Revolution, and its effects on Azerbaijan. Ali Khan is a Muslim Azerbaijani of Persian origin, Nino a Georgian, thus European, and Christian, but their love for each other seems to overcome the cultural differences, and their parents are modern enough to ultimately accept this. Yet, their live together becomes increasingly difficult because of a treacherous Armenian (of course, in an Azerbijani book), and modernity-opposing habits as blood honour and broader family values rooted in religion. And is ultimately undone by Azarbaijani nationalism. Read this book!

Ali and Nino, two lovers from vastly different backgrounds, grow up together in carefree innocence in Baku on the Caspian Sea. Here, where Eastern and Occidental collide, they are inevitably drawn into the events of the First World War and the Russian Revolution. Torn apart by the turmoil, Ali joins the defense of Azerbajan from the onslaught of the Red Army, and Nino flees to the safety of Paris with their child, not knowing whether they will ever see each other again. A sweeping tale, as romantic and gripping as Gone with the Wind or Dr. Zhivago, it portrays, against a gloriously exotic backdrop, the enduring love between childhood friends divided by their separate cultures.

I just finished reading Ali and Nino by "Kurban Said." The book is momentously good, and is one of the few times I have read a "novel.' The book itself purports to be a novel about a doomed love affair between Ali Khan Shirvanshir, a Muslim and Nino Kipiani, a Christian. On the surface, without creating a spoiler, they fall in love as students, they marry, and he is killed in battle. The deeper story is about the implosion of Baku, Azerbaijan's unique fusion of East and West. The excerpt above, from the book, summarizes the conflicting nature of the Oriental world and Europe.
My path to reading this novel is almost as complex. A friend turned me on to reading The Orientalist: Solving the Mystery of a Strange and Dangerous Life. This book culminated an investigation by , its author, as to the roots of Ali and Nino. Mr. Reiss concluded that the author was Lev Nussenbaum, a Jewish author from Baku. Mr. Nussenbaum was apparently quite a prolific author, under the name of Essad Bey,including Blood and Oil in the Orient: My childhood in Baku and my hair-raising escape through the Caucasus and Stalin: The Career Of A Fanatic by Essad Bey a/k/a Lev Nussenbaum, I consider Ali and Nino to be a novelistic rendition of much of the material in Blood and Oil in the Orient.The destruction of Azerbaijan was an example of the destruction of the antebellum, i.e. pre-1914 world by World War I. While the Czar, Kaiser Wilhelm and the Hapsburgs were not wonderful, what followed was far, far worse. I'll leave that story to Stalin: The Career Of A Fanatic.
This novel is intense enough. ( )
