The Golem and the Jinni: A Novel

The Golem and the Jinni - Helene Wecker A really nice working of two legendary creatures combined with great historical research about the Little Syria neighborhood of New York in the early 20th century.
A seemless mix of magic realism and historical fiction. Wecker certainly understands the folklore and how to commingle it in a historical setting. the pacing and the writing are superb throughout.
Well worth the read. I look forward to her next project.
