“Join Diane Wiener and The Golem on their fabulist, philosophical escapades through everyday life. Companion to Wiener’s THE GOLEM VERSES (2018), THE GOLEM RETURNS carries with it renewed questions of creativity and friendship in a space where human norms have been Madly defamiliarized.
THE GOLEM RETURNS is an enchanting conversation about the unknown and the known. With equal parts earnestness, mysticism, and whimsy, Wiener celebrates the Golem as a queer, crip, Mad, and uniquely Jewish figure, and as a deliciously mischievous muse.”
