When that happens, I just start writing the future scenes separately, without regard to where or when they'll eventually fit in to the larger narrative. Once I've done that, I can usually see how they fit in If it turns out to be the latter, then I'll take that "wonderful" piece of writing and delete it.

The Aeneid by Virgil. From early childhood, Lev feasted on tales of the Orient and wandered the Muslim quarter of the city, dominated by the palace of the Khans. The palace, and the desert outside the city, he later wrote, "became for me the epitome of peaceful, ancient, silent grandeur. Revolution broke the spell. Fleeing the Bolsheviks, the Nussimbaums embarked on a terrifying journey across Turkestan and Persia, territory that supplied Lev with rich literary material and the seeds of a new identity. The glories of Constantinople, which Lev reached in , put the finishing gloss on the resplendent creation soon to be presented to the world as Essad Bey.

View all New York Times newsletters. In Berlin, Nussimbaum quickly found his place. At the prestigious Literarische Welt, the Weimar equivalent of The New York Review of Books, he became the resident expert on the East, writing on topics as various as King Amanullah of Afghanistan and a professional congress organized by former eunuchs, thrown out of work by the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. He wooed and won the chic, thoroughly modern Erika Loewendahl, a poet and, like Nussimbaum, a fixture in cafe society. A facile, stylish writer, Nussimbaum turned out books at a furious rate, all of them best sellers.
He chronicled his early life and the Bolshevik takeover of Baku in "Blood and Oil in the Orient," and took his wide-eyed German readers along a fantastic tour in "Twelve Secrets of the Caucasus," where, he claimed, one could find a strange, secluded land called Khevsuria, "the political Switzerland of the Caucasus," reached by a long rope hanging from a cliff.
There, anyone fleeing the police could find sanctuary. By the late 's, when the Nazis uncovered his Jewish identity, Nussimbaum needed that rope. When he could no longer publish in Germany, he left for Vienna and wrote two novels under the name Kurban Said. But time was running out.
In , Vienna fell to the Nazis, and Nussimbaum, who was pursued by revolution and chaos all his life, escaped to Positano on the Amalfi coast.

He survived on charity but eventually succumbed, at 36, to Raynaud's syndrome, a rare gangrenelike disorder, leaving a trail of mystery and romance behind him. Reiss's efforts to pick up the trail become a parallel narrative to Nussimbaum's life. His inquiries lead him to a strange gallery of characters, most in their 80's or even older, and all of them extremely odd, like the Austrian baroness, isolated in a remote castle, who spends her nights writing the French text for an Israeli-German rock musical.
Unfortunately, she has never actually seen a musical, so Mr. Reiss, at her request, finds himself performing bits from "On the Town" and "Camelot. Reiss's quest takes him right through the looking glass. Reiss, reluctant to throw away any research, stops the narrative repeatedly to deliver a lengthy historical set piece as Nussimbaum moves from city to city, and he drags the reader a little too often into far-flung libraries and dusty offices as he follows up one lead after another.

He is, to put it mildly, in no hurry to unfold his tale, but what a tale it is -- mesmerizing, poignant and almost incredible. Reiss, caught up in the spell of Essad Bey, has turned around and worked some magic of his own. Please upgrade your browser. See next articles. Invalid email address.
