Two fantastic creatures find their way through turn-of-the-century New York in Wecker's intricate debut novel. Weaving multiple strands of mythology and immigrant folklore with more human and grounded concerns, like the always-understandable desire for belonging, THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI draws you into its vivid, sprawling, magical world--this historical fiction is anything but sepia-toned. Just try to put it down, if you can.
