Clay Men

At the Guardian Imogen Russell Williams reflects on the allure of the golem, considers a few titles, and asks for more. Off the top of my head, here are three:

  1. Jonathan Stroud’s The Golem’s Eye.
  2. David Almond’s Clay.
  3. David Wisniewski’s Golem.

    In Fablehaven there is a golem used as a groundskeeper/handy man.

    There’s “The Golem” by Barbara Rogasky, with wonderful illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman.

    Marge Piercy’s He, She and It features a golem as one of the central characters, if I remember correctly.
