Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Days is a new magical realism novel by Salman Rushdie. In the twelfth century, a female jinn (a jinnia) called Dunia fell in love with a philosopher and bore many children, whose descendants were part-jinn, part-human. A thousand years later, the slits between earth and the world of the jinn reopened, sparking a battle between the dark jinn (the ifrit) and Dunia and her children.
