Gini Alhadeff is a beautiful writer, adept at prose that is elegant, clear, and honest. There is nothing she could write that I would not believe, for every moment she creates is so vividly presented it is as if I were reading my own diary of a life I am only discovering now, set within the time, feeling, and place she creates. In her novel Diary of a Djinn, the reader becomes intimately acquainted with a woman born in Egypt but schooled in Italy who now enters the world of adults, working first for a fashion house in Milan and then moving to New York City to pursue her own writing.

Gini Alhadeff is a journalist and writer. She worked variously at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and worked for a designer in Milan, Italy. She has been working as a freelance writer since 1985. Additionally, Alhadeff is a founder of a literary magazines Normal and XXIst Century. She has also contributed articles on topics ranging from travel to interior design to various periodicals, such as Travel & Leisure, Architectural Digest, House & Garden, Library Journal, New York Times Magazine, Town & Country Monthly and Vogue.

Adjinn skips from body to body and dies for none. The body is to a djinn its human bottle when it accepts for a time the limit of one person and one life. it on the left was the bookstore where I bought the newspapers and foreign books that alone made me feel the city had not yet swallowed me whole and I would never emerge to make myself known in any other part of the world. A corner of my coat was recalcitrantly exposed, begging for attention, hoping to be caught in a wild current and borne to a land far from this low-lying swampland.

The all-knowing djinn of ancient lore can adopt many forms, but there are times when it chooses the limits of one body, one life. In this bewitching first novel, a djinn takes up residence in a restlessly brilliant woman, guiding her choices in life and love as she chases the satisfaction that eludes her—from a cloistered Florentine boarding school to the glamour of a Milan fashion house to a life beyond her means in 1990s Manhattan. She is as skilled at observing the worlds she moves through as her djinn is skilled at observing her, but an ever-growing self-awareness does not help her to realize her heart’s desires. That is, until the wise djinn puts her in the path of the Princess: imperious octogenarian and mother of a man she can never fully possess. With Diary of a Djinn, Alhadeff has given us a novel of playful intelligence and insight, and a poignant testimony to love’s unpredictable unfolding.
