ELLA LEYA    Book Number: 81221    Product format: Paperback

She is a good daughter of the Communist Party. That's all that matters in Azerbaijan in 1979. Leila shows her loyalty any way she can - how her fingers dance across the piano in competitions, how she adores the ancient streets of Baku, how she recites a party pledge with fervour. Then she is ordered to spy on a music shop suspected of traitorous Western influences and suddenly being a good Communist is no longer enough - now she dreams of being a hero. But Leila didn't expect the complication of Tahir, the painter who owns the shop. His jazz music, vibrant art and pointed opinions crack open the world she has been living in. Just when she decides to follow her heart, her comrades force her to make an impossible choice. Set at the crossroads of Turkish, Persian and Russian cultures under the red flag of Communism in the late 70s, here is one woman's struggle to find her place in the world in a timeless story of redemption and destiny. 356pp in paperback.
