Hi, I’m Donna Minkowitz, the author of Growing up Golem: How I Survived My Mother, Brooklyn and Some Really Bad Dates, which is published by 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, which is a sort of magical servant made of clay from 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. Even harder to try to become one.
You can read the first chapter here, and you can buy the book here from Riverdale Ave Books. I’m thrilled that Growing Up Golem was named a finalist for both a Lambda LiteraryAward and for the Publishing Triangle’s Judy Grahn Nonfiction Award!
