Item description for Golem Song by Marc Estrin...

By some incalculable force of human attraction, Alan Krieger has two lovers.

A man of his girth and compulsion, a man who cannot stop talking and who

believes the world to be completely irrational, should not take one companion

for granted, much less two. Women who can tolerate his anger, his obsessions,

and his antic clowning all at the same time are not easy to come by.

But when the thought arises in Alan that he's been "chosen" to deliver Jewish

America from the threat of Anti-Semitism, then all his connections to reality fall

away, including those to his lovers and his family. Recalling the folktale of the

Golem---the Frankensteinian giant of clay that saved the Jews in 16th Century

Prague---Alan lays out a plan of attack and then sets to making the most outrageous

of preparations in the culture wars, in New York City at the turn of the millennium.

Like each of the acclaimed Estrin novels that have preceded it, Golem Song is an

allusive, manic, and wildly comic approach to some of the most serious and difficult

cultural questions of our time.

More About Marc Estrin

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Marc Estrin grew up in a small apartment so full of books you had to walk sideways in the hall. Of these, he read not one--till age sixteen, when he gave up his literary virginity to Franz Kafka: The Trial was his introduction to the larger life. This explains much. A mediocre student in high school, he was teased by his father into reading The Magic Mountain during the summer before college. Epiphany! The book was for him a topo-map of western thought and culture. With Mann as his guide, he sailed through college and grad schools, making a Hegelian leap out of graduate science into the richer, if iffier area of the arts. The Vietnam war and Bertolt Brecht were his siren callers into political activity, and his professional theater work dissipated into organizing, college teaching and communal living. When these ceased to put food on the table, he reached back into a past life to study and practice medicine. With the computer came the possibility of writing without retyping--a stimulus sufficient to have resulted in his current crop of manuscripts, published and unpublished.

Marc Estrin currently resides in Burlington, in the state of Vermont.
