Chris Bohjalian's newest novel is The Light in the Ruins.

When asked him to curate a bookshelf, he decided on a "corner of the library... for the Doomed Lovers --- or, at least, for those lovers who will need a whole lot of luck for their romance to survive."

One of the 20 books he tagged:
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker.
