The Golem

“A superbly atmospheric story set in the old Prague ghetto featuring The Golem, a kind of rabbinical Frankenstein’s monster, which manifests iitself every 33 years in a room without a door. Stranger still, it seems to have the same face as the narrator. Made into a film in 1920, this extraordinary book combines uncanny psychology of doppelganger stories with expressionism and more than a little melodrama… Meyrink’s old Prague – like Dicken’s London – is one of the great creations of City writing, an eerie, claustrophobic and fantastical underworld where anything can happen.” The Sunday Times
