Berlin 1923. Jewish hatmaker Kasper Mutzenmacher’s carefree life of fedoras, jazz, and booze comes to a screeching halt when he must use the god Hermes’s “wishing hat, ” a teleportation device, to rescue his flapper girlfriend from the shadowy Klaus, a veil-wearing Nazi who brainwashes his victims until they can’t see their own faces. Klaus eventually discovers the wishing hat’s existence and steals it on Kristallnacht. But even if Kasper gets back the hat and spirits his family to America, they won’t be safe until they break the ancient curse that has trapped them in the hat business for sixteen centuries. Book One of the Life Indigo series, Kasper Mutzenmacher’s Cursed Hat is a fantastical family saga about tradition, faith, and identity, set during the Jazz Age, Nazi Germany, and the Detroit race riots of 1943.
