Description
Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life to by a disgraced rabbi; Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire born in the ancient Syrian desert, trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard. When their respective fortunes bring them both to New York City in 1899, they become unlikely friends and soul mates, with a mystical connection. Fast-moving and hard to put down—you may finish it in one long sitting—Helene Wecker's debut novel is also rich with meaning, weaves strands of Yiddish and Middle Eastern literature, historical fiction, and magical fable into a wondrously inventive tale.

"This impressive first novel manages to combine the narrative magic of The Arabian Nights with the kind of emotional depth, philosophical seriousness, and good, old-fashioned storytelling found in the stories of Isaac Bashevis Singer.... The author makes you care enough about the humanity of these magical spirits to not only see them through to the end but also to regret that you've reached the last page."—NYTimes
