Life ] ➑ Ebook By Tom Reiss ᒷ Reiss persistently peeled away layers of fact and fiction to recount a remarkable life He was also lucky his subjects elusiveness made ferreting out truth difficult, but Reiss discovered six of Nussimbaums notebooks in the possession of his last editor Critics agree that The Orientalist fascinates from both a biographical and cultural perspective its rich in exotic settings and characters, from an Austrian baroness to a former Hollywood starlet Despite its charm, the book has some faults Reiss seems to have included every piece of information he encountered, from historical anecdotes to ornate set pieces Some factual errors, the books brisk pace, and the lack of maps may confuse readers Still, The Orientalist is excellent look into the reinvention of self during one of historys most turbulent times Copyright 2004 Phillips Nelson Media, Inc.Lev Nussimbaum fabricated a life that in its brief arc encompassed the whole of the Western and Near Eastern culture of his time A Jew from the Caucasus, born in the first throes of the Russian Revolution, he styled himself a Muslim prince As Kurban Said, he wrote a best selling novel that made him the toast of Nazi Germany Inventing and reinventing himself, he left a confused and perplexing trail Reiss pursues two great narratives, one recounting Nussimbaum s life itself, the other following the author s quest to ferret from among myths and outright lies the truth of this man s life Along the way, readers absorb much about oil rich Azerbaijan, the Russian Revolution, the rise of fascism, and the centuries old clashes of cultures and religions in the Caucasus and Middle East Digressions abound because of Nussimbaum s intricate, multicultural encounters In the hands of a less adept writer, such complex history might grow opaque and tedious, but Reiss storytelling flair and the utterly compelling character of Lev Nussimbaum turn this biography into a page turner of epic proportion Mark
