Spring Novel Tea
Helene Wecker, author of The Golem and the Jinni
An immigrant tale that combines the elements of Jewish and Arab folk mythology, The Golem and the Jinni tells the story of two supernatural creatures who arrive separately in New York in 1899. In an exciting and fast-paced narrative of adventure and adversity, the Golem and the Jinni finally meet and form a strong bond. The narrative traces their respective journeys, as they explore the strange human city both working to make at least a temporary place for themselves in this new world, and develop tentative relationships with the people in their neighborhoods. This is Wecker’s first novel, but it has already received rave reviews and was on the cover of the NY Times Book Review.
