In case you needed an excuse to reread Helene Wecker’s stunning 2013 novel, the book cover for the Indonesian edition of The Golem and the Jinni was released last week:
“The black silhouette is a punch-out, so it’s like the entire city is inside the Golem’s head. (Which seems apropos, given her abilities.) Love that font, too,” the author posted last Tuesday — and we agree! A breathtaking work of historical fiction infused with Jewish and Syrian mystical lore, The Golem and the Jinni is one of the all-time most popular titles among Jewish Book Council’s readers: if you haven’t already picked it up, be sure to add it to your summer reading list!
