The late twentieth and early twenty first centuries have seen a resurgence of the golem in several major American novels. What factors might lead to such a reimagining of the golem in American fiction? Cynthia Ozick’s The Puttermesser Papers (1997) and Thane Rosenbaum’s The Golems of Gotham (2002) re-invent golems no longer anchored in vengeance but in healing, as vehicles for the kabbalistic notion of Tikkun Olam (“repairing the world”).

In these two novels, the golem is updated as a crusader who addresses both the ills of citizens and a collective fin de siècle melancholy.
