Discussing the book, The Hidden Palace: Anovel of the Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
Chava is a golem, a woman made of clay, who can hear the thoughts and longings of those around her and feels compelled by her nature to help them. Ahmad is a jinni, a restless creature of fire, once free to roam the desert but now imprisoned in the shape of a man. Fearing they’ll be exposed as monsters, these magical beings hide their true selves and try
to pass as human – just two more immigrants in the bustling world of1900s Manhattan. Brought together under calamitous circumstances, their lives are now entwined – but they’re not yet certain of what they mean to each other.
