The Golem (European Classics)

The Golem (European Classics)

Gustav Meyrink
A superbly atmospheric story set in the old Prague ghetto featuring the Golem, a kind of rabbinical Frankenstein's monster, which manifests 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 the uncanny psychology of doppelganger stories with expressionism and more than a little melodrama... Meyrink's old Prague like Dickens' London is one of the great creation of city writing, an eerie, claustrophobic and fantastical underworld where anything can happen.
