The Golem of Havana

Author(s): & &

The Golem of Havana tells the story of a Hungarian-Jewish family who escaped the Holocaust and are now living in Batista’s Havana on the brink of the Cuban Revolution. When their maid’s son, a guerrilla fighter, is injured, they must choose between protecting him and guarding their first fragile grasp on prosperity since their arrival. The Golem of Havana weaves together the music and traditions of two worlds, asking questions about family, community, religion, and politics.
