Community Reviews

Wonderful character-driven fantasy

The Golem and the Jinni is a delightful read in which mythical creatures from Arab and Jewish cultures meet in New York. As their lives cross they also cross into the lives of the Jewish, Syrian, and WASP communities in New York. The characters are well developed and the plot builds suspense. Highly recommended.
