Marek Toman in Leipzig, Germany


Despite the cancellation of the Leipzig book fair, the author will be presenting the German version of his YA novel My Golem in Leipzig on 14 March.

In this exceptional book, Marek Toman tells the story of Rabbi Löw and his Golem in a surprising way, portraying the famous Prague legend from the perspective of a 15-year-old Jewish boy. Jacob, a disciple of the Rabbi, is torn between his feelings for two girls – the Christian Johanna and the Jewish Lea. The tension between the followers of both religions is captured in an unusual love story.

The German translation has been published by the Austrian bahoe books in 2019.
