About this submission

Half/Human: Golem is a retelling of the Golem legend; a story that originates in my personal family history. More than ever, our generation is struggling universally with identity and structure in an ever-changing world where not much seems to be in control of responsible people. From people from cultures in diaspora to those who feel that their backgrounds are bland, the average person alive today probably isn’t quite sure who they are. The Golem story itself is a co-opted and twisted narrative compared with the original. In this retelling, I strive to honour its origin and reflect this identity struggle.
