Hi, I’m Donna Minkowitz, the author of Growing up Golem: How I Survived My Mother, Brooklyn and Some Really Bad Dates, which is just out from Riverdale Ave Books/Magnus.
It’s a “magical realist memoir” written as though instead of giving birth to me, my mother created me as a golem, a sort of magical clay slave out of Jewish legend. That’s right, a golem. And then I become a golem who tries to be an activist queer reporter for the Village Voice
It’s hard to pass for human. Especially when you’ve been trained to obey.
Hope you enjoy the video trailer:
