For the Fantasy Fan

Set in turn-of-the-century New York, The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker follows two mythic beings, a clay-made "woman" and a "man" of fire, who both find themselves in NYC. Blending history with fable and Middle Eastern literature, Wecker's writing follows the pair's unlikely friendship as they navigate the new culture.
