And if you want to order products from regions of Azerbaijan? The said, "Kapadia treats intimacy like exposition — time-passage updates mark every scene — leaving his leads to flounder against backdrops.
Deciding to buy a book, you can get it at any point of Baku, as the courier will deliver the order at any specified address. Nino, Ali's lover, is from neighboring Georgia and is Christian, but the two are deeply in love and elope to the countryside. If you enjoy a good mystery, I highly recommend you research this topic for yourself. Tamar is afraid no one will ever marry her daughter Nino and plans to send her to.
Yet even there, culture, religion and the historical backdrop are important. Although young, the two love deeply, their feelings continue to grow and endure in spite of the seemingly insurmountable cultural and religious conflicts that confront them.
Located in the beautiful Miracle park, the monument is inspired by the local legend of Ali, an Azerbaijani youth who falls in love with Nino, a Georgian princess. Said knew, just as I know today, that no story of the Caucasus would be complete without mentioning Shamil. When read with an open mind and without resorting to stereotypes, this story takes you on Ali and Nino remarkably insightful journey to Baku, Tbilisi, Karabakh, Tehran and even to the mountains Ali and Nino Dagestan.
There are many parallels between Said and Essad Bey, the Islamic pen name under which Nussimbaum often wrote.

"Man and wife," he says, "should help each Ali and Nino by word and deed. A pious friend tells Ali, "The woman is just an acre on which the man sows. The union of Ali and Nino is not a union of Europe and Asia, as an outsider may rush to conclude, but it is a union of two of the many distinct and yet related cultures of the Caucasus.
Nino is openly dismayed that she is confined to the harem, pestered by eunuchs, and pressured to wear a veil in public.
I chose it for our book group; and it got a very high rating from almost everyone.
I was moved to read this book after reading The Orientalist - about the author.
In the concluding pages of the book, Ali, a noble young man from Baku, dies on a bridge in Ganja, a city in northern Azerbaijan, just as his ancestors from the House of Shirvanshir died defending this land.
