Apple strudel from THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI by Helene Wecker (Fiction/literary)

Aug 16, 2015

Apple strudel from THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI by Helene Wecker.

The story: the separate journeys of a Golem and a Jinni who discover New York in 1899 and cross paths.

"The Golem went to the Rabbi’s that night carrying an apple strudel carefully, wrapped. She walked with long strides, stretching her legs, feeling the cold night air settle into her body. Lamps glowed in the windows as she passed.     […] She went to the kitchen, set down the strudel, and lit a lamp, her anxiety growing." Excerpt from THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI by Helene Wecker (First Harper Perennial Edition p.168-169)
