Banine was the granddaughter of Azerbaijani peasants who became fabulously wealthy through the discovery and production of oil. ‘Days in the Caucasus’ is her memoir: a tale of overlapping cultures, of ideas of East and West, of pogroms, revolution, end of empire, coming of age, forced marriage and multiple escapes – to Persia, Georgia and eventually Paris.
