Last night I Noah finished his book report and project. Half of it was on The Grey King (easy) and half of it was on Golem. Golem is illustrated with hauntingly beautiful cut-paper scenes. The story is very dark and easily used as a modern day parable but Noah missed the underlying themes completely. Maybe I am doing Noah a disservice by not having him watch the news each day. I do not accept full blame for him thinking “there is one guy in the story named Rabbi”. Golem is available at the library and only takes a few minutes to read. It takes much longer to think about the story in a political context. Go read it.
