The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker

Chava, a golem created in Poland, arrives in late nineteenth-century New York City and meets Ahmad, a jinni recently released from his prison in a flask in New York’s Little Syria. This beautifully-crafted historical fantasy title explores how these two non-human beings experience and view humanity, and Wecker navigates themes of immigration and assimilation—as well as loneliness—with empathy and care.
