About this Item: Random House Trade Paperbacks, New York, 2006. Paperback. Condition: Fine. xxvii, 447 pp., illus., biblio., index; 21 cm. Includes: Reading Group Discussion Guide at the back. Tight, clean copy. "Part history, part cultural biography, and part literary mystery, The Orientalist traces the life of Lev Nussimbaum, a Jew who transformed himself into a Muslim prince and became a best-selling author in Nazi Germany. Born in 1905 to a wealthy family in the oil-boom city of Baku, at the edge of the czarist empire, Lev escaped the Russian Revolution in a camel caravan. He found refuge in Germany, where, writing under the names Essad Bey and Kurban Said, his remarkable books about Islam, desert adventures, and global revolution, became celebrated across fascist Europe. His enduring masterpiece, Ali and Nino - a story of love across ethnic and religious boundaries, published on the eve of the Holocaust - is still in print today. But Lev's life grew wilder than his wildest stories. He married an international heiress who had no idea of his true identity - until she divorced him in a tabloid scandal. His closest friend in New York, George Sylvester Viereck - also a friend of both Freud's and Einstein's - was arrested as the leading Nazi agent in the United States. Lev was invited to be Mussolini's official biographer - until the Fascists discovered his 'true' identity. Under house arrest in the Amalfi cliff town of Positano, Lev wrote his last book - discovered in a half a dozen notebooks never before read by anyone - helped by a mysterious half-German salon hostess, an Algerian weapons-smuggler, and the poet Ezra Pound. Tom Reiss spent five years tracking down secret police records, love letters, diaries, and the deathbed notebooks. Beginning with a yearlong investigation for The New Yorker, he pursued Lev's story across ten countries and found himself caught up in encounters as dramatic and surreal, and sometimes as heartbreaking, as his subject's life. Reiss's quest for the truth buffets him from one weird character to the next: from the last heir of the Ottoman throne to a rock opera-composing baroness in an Austrian castle, to an aging starlet in a Hollywood bungalow full of cats and turtles. As he tracks down the pieces of Lev Nussimbaum's deliberately obscured life, Reiss discovers a series of shadowy worlds - of European pan-Islamists, nihilist assassins, anti-Nazi book smugglers, Baku oil barons, Jewish Orientalists - that have also been forgotten. The result is a thoroughly unexpected picture of the twentieth century - of the origins of our ideas about race and religious self-definition, and of the roots of modern fanaticism and terrorism. Written with grace and infused with wonder, The Orientalist is an astonishing book. / Tom Reiss has written about politics and culture for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, and elsewhere. He lives with his wife and daughters in New York City." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 088364

About this Item: Bertelsmann u. a. ( Lizenz des Scherz Verlags) Ohne Jahresangabe (1975), Gütersloh u. a., 1975. Leinen. Condition: gut. Lizenzausgabe. Blauer Ganzleineneinband mit geprägtem Rückentitel, Farbkopfschnitt und fotografisch gestaltetem Schutzumschlag. Der Umschlag leicht nachgedunkelt und etwas randberieben, die Schnitte leicht berieben, gestempeltes "A" auf Vorsatz, ansonsten guter Erhaltungszustand. "Dieser wundervoll farbige, mit feinem Humor gewürzte Roman ist nicht nur die bewegende Geschichte zweier unvergeßlicher, vom Schicksal oft geprüfter Liebender, sondern zugleich ein Epos des kulturellen Wandels, das unmittelbar berührt. Schauplatz des Romans ist Baku, die Stadt am Kaspischen Meer, wo sich orientalische und europäische Kultur eigenartig vermengen. Vor diesem Hintergrund von orientalischem Traditionsbewußtsein und westlicher Aufgeklärtheit, von Märchenwelt und harter Politik spielt die Liebesgeschichte zwischen der europäisch erzoenen Georgierin Nino und dem Mohammedaner Ali, die beide aus alteingesessenen Familien stammen. Zwischen Ost und West hin und her gerissen wie ihr Land, haben Ali und Nino nur eine einzige Sicherheit: ihre Liebe zueinander. Sie hilft ihnen, alle Widrigkeiten zu überwinden und die Stürme der kaukasischen Wirren mit der Tapferkeit des Kämpfers und der Klugheit der Liebenden zu bestehen." "››Dieser Roman erzählt von der Erschütterung zweier Kulturen und einer unerschütterlichen Liebe. Es ist eine uralte Geschichte, einfach und gut erzählt. Sie weckt die Erinnerung an eine verlorene Welt und an das Glück, das Liebe zu geben vermag« Washington Star »Hier ist man auf einen vergrabenen Schatz gestoßen« New York Times »Das strahlende Sonnenlicht, in das der Roman eine jahrtausendealte Kultur taucht, läßt lebendige Geschichte erstehen.« Life »Ein wunderbares Buch voller farbenreicher Bilder und zärtlicher Poesie. Ganz selten einmal wird man von einem Roman so in eine fremde, faszinierende Welt hineingezogen. Die Lektüre wird dadurch zu einem außergewöhnlichen Erlebnis. << Publishers Weekly" (Verlagstext) Essad Bey (eigentlich Lew Abramowitsch Nussimbaum, auch Noussimbaum * 20. Oktober 1905 in Baku, damals Russisches Kaiserreich; † 27. August 1942 in Positano, Italien) war ein deutschsprachiger Schriftsteller russisch-jüdischer Abstammung. Seine Werke veröffentlichte er auch unter den Pseudonymen Kurban Said, Mohammed Essad-Bey, Esad Bej und Qûrbân Saîd. (Wikipedia) In deutscher Sprache. 238, (1) pages. 8° (130 x 210mm).

About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Arco, Wuppertal | Kaukasische Novellen | Als Grigor Robakidses Kaukasische Novellen Anfang der dreißiger Jahre in Deutschland erschienen, lag die georgische Literatur noch ferner als heute. Die beinahe ethnographische Titelnovelle "Magische Quellen" führt nach Chewsurien - und damit in eine Bergregion von urgewaltiger Schönheit. | Als Grigor Robakidses Kaukasische Novellen Anfang der dreißiger Jahre in Deutschland erschienen, lag die georgische Literatur noch ferner als heute. Die beinahe ethnographische Titelnovelle "Magische Quellen" führt nach Chewsurien - und damit in eine Bergregion von urgewaltiger Schönheit. Hier prallen Moderne und archaische Bräuche aufeinander, als der Erzähler sich mit einem Filmteam aus Moskau auf Expedition begibt, um mehr und mehr in den Bann des rätselhaften Volks der Chewsuren zu geraten. Mit der Erzählung "Der Imam Schamyl" rückt Robakidse einen kaukasischen Helden in den Blickpunkt, der sich 1859 erst einer riesigen russischen Streitmacht ergeben mußte. Heute als Identifikationsfigur für Islamisten von teils unseliger Anziehungskraft, nach 1921 als Symbol des Widerstands gegen russischen - und sowjetischen - Imperialismus im Bewußtsein, liest sich die Erzählung, neben ihrer psychologischen Verdichtung, als kritische Beschäftigung nicht nur mit den zaristischen Kolonialkriegen. Ein Essay von Robakidses berühmtem Zeitgenossen Essad Bey liefert Hintergründe zum Wirken des Imams in Daghestan.Mit seinem Vorwort liefert der Autor eine kurze Einführung in die georgische Kultur: von der Kolcherin Medea bis zur heiligen Nino, die das Christentum brachte, von der sagenhaften Königin Thamar, an deren Hof Rustaveli um 1200 sein weltberühmtes Versepos Der Recke im Pantherfell schrieb, bis hin zu Vascha Pschavela (1862-1915), dem Sohn jener Berge, der Poeme mit dem großen Atem Homers, des Nibelungenlieds oder des Gilgamesch-Epos schuf. | Format: Paperback | 179 gr | 206x130x10 mm | 150 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783938375785
