El Golem es una de las novelas capitales de la literatura fantástica del siglo XX; con ella, el escritor vienés Gustav Meyrink llevó hasta sus más altas posibilidades narrativas el mito hebreo del coloso de barro que sólo pueden animar quienes han descifrado el nombre secreto de la divinidad.

La alucinatoria vida de Athanasius Pernath transcurre en el gueto judío de Praga durante la dominación del imperio austrohúngaro. Tras sucumbir al extraño influjo de un sombrero encontrado en una catedral, el protagonista intenta abrirse paso entre sórdidos crímenes y arcanas apariciones al tiempo que comienza a entrever el carácter místico de la realidad y de su propio destino. Përsonajes misteriosos y antiguas leyendas medievales se entretegen en un trasfondo onírico y perturbador.

Las intensas ilustraciones de Marcia Schvartz y Fernando Bedoya recrean magistralmente los gatros terrores de esta pesadilla.
