An immigrant tale that combines elements of Jewish and Arab folk mythology, this inventive historical novel portrays two supernatural creatures who arrive separately in New York in 1899. They work to create places for themselves in this new world until they meet, becoming friends and soul mates. Chava and Ahmad, the golem and jinni respectively, will return as the principal characters of The Hidden Palace, this year’s One Bay One Book pick.
