Reprint. Originally published: New York: Random House, 2015.

Blending history, mythology and a timeless love story, this is a satirical, magical masterpiece from one of the greatest living writers. In the near future, after a storm strikes New York City, the strangenesses begin.

A down-to-earth gardener finds that his feet no longer touch the ground.

A graphic novelist awakens in his bedroom to a mysterious entity that resembles his own comic book creation.

Abandoned at the mayor's office, a baby identifies corruption with her mere presence, marking the guilty with blemishes and boils.

A seductive gold digger is soon tapped to combat forces beyond imagining. Unbeknownst to them, they are all descended from the whimsical, capricious, wanton creatures known as the jinn.

Centuries ago, Dunia, a princess of the jinn, fell in love with a mortal man of reason.

Together they produced an astonishing number of children, unaware of their fantastical powers, who spread across generations in the human world. `A riotous, exuberant and sometimes maddening celebration of the power of storytelling' Sunday Times
