Helene Wecker will be discussing her debut novel, The Golem and the Jinni, which is listed as an Amazon Best Book of the Month for April 2013. Imaginative and meticulously researched, historical fiction meets fantasy in one of the most highly anticipated fiction releases of the spring. “It sounds like the setup for a really strange joke: ‘A golem and a jinni walk into a bakery in early 19th-century New York....’ but this chance meeting between mythical beings takes readers on a dazzling journey through cultures in turn-of-the-century New York.”
