    Helene Wecker's dazzling debut novel tells the story of two supernatural creatures who appear mysteriously in 1899 New York. Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a strange man who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York Harbor. Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian Desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop.

    When Gerda Kohl moves from the home in which she raised her family to a posh new retirement center, she must decide what to take with her and what to leave behind. This includes not only photographs, furniture, and mementos but weightier items, too - warring daughters, rebellious grandchildren, and the ghosts of a past that seems increasingly more real than the present.

    Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master, the husband who commissioned her, dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York in 1899. Ahmad is a djinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop. Though he is no longer imprisoned, Ahmad is not entirely free - an unbreakable band of iron binds him to the physical world.

    New York, 1899: Zwei magische Kreaturen gelangen in das Zentrum der Neuen Welt. Chava ist ein Golem, ein Geschöpf aus Ton - Ahmad ein Wesen aus Feuer, ein Dschinn, der nach tausendjähriger Gefangenschaft endlich aus seiner Flasche darf. Beide irren verloren durch die Straßen der Stadt auf der Suche nach Freundschaft und ihrer eigenen Identität. Als sich ihre Wege kreuzen, entsteht bald eine tiefe Zuneigung. Doch ihr Glück ist bedroht, als ein mächtiger Feind auftaucht, der es auf die übernatürlichen Kräfte der beiden abgesehen hat.
