'Just William's Luck' praises The Golem

Literary blogger raves of 'the sheer pleasure of reading such a high-quality hardback'

William Rycroft, popular literary blogger who writes under the banner of 'Just William's Luck', recently published a hugely positive review of our edition of Gustav Meyrink's The Golem. One of our top sellers for Christmas, it features the noted translation by Mike Mitchell, an introduction by author Iain Sinclair, and evocative illustrations by Vladimir Zimakov.

'I was very lucky to receive this gorgeous book from The Folio Society and not a little intrigued by it as the legend of the Golem has been a ticklish interest ever since reading Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures Of Kavalier And Clay and after spending a weekend in beautiful Prague.' He continues: 'I can't stress enough the sheer pleasure of reading such a high-quality hardback with paper stock so thick it's almost card, proper stiff boards, tight binding and that pleasing heft in the hand.'
