In Helene Wecker's magical debut, two supernatural creatures meet in New York City to forge a redemptive friendship.
Chava is a golem, created out of clay to be her late master's wife. Ahmad is a jinni, a creature of fire, trapped for years in a copper flask before a tinsmith released him.
Together, Chava and Ahmad negotiate the harsh streets of turn-of-the-century NYC, encountering new people and cultures. The Golem and the Jinni weaves together fable and historical fiction in what our reviewer calls a "wonderful tale for our time."
