  Genie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In pre-Islamic Arabian mythology and in Islam, a jinni (also "djinni" or "djini") is a member of the jinn (or "djinn"), a race of spirits.
Usually, the term djinn is used by authors who wish to convey a more serious interpretation of the mythical creature, rather than the comical genies the Western public has become used to.
Beaver in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe conjectures that the White Witch Jadis was not human as was her claim but in fact half giantess and half Jinn, a descendant of Lilith.

 Diary of a Djinn:ALHADEFF, GINI:0375402349:eCampus.com
A series of adventures takes the narrator and her alter ego, the playful and watchful Djinn, from the glamorous rigors of a Milan fashion house in the 1980s, where she is a reluctant muse to the designer, to 1990s Manhattan.
In a humorous flashback to the sixties and seventies, she revisits the austere, cloistered life of a Florentine boarding school filled with the daughters of bluebloods and industrialists, a time of comic/catastrophic infatuations with improbable men.
Smart, poignant, and wry, Diary of a Djinn is a tale of the everyday mix of the tragic and the mundane, of identities revealed, and of the marriage of dreams and reality -- a beguiling debut novel.
