Today, I had a reason to remember the 1981 novel "The Tribe" by Bari Wood (that is Bari Ev Wood Posterman),
I read the Signet paperback when living in Dallas, It concerns a modern day NYC cabal of Jewish concentration camp survivors, who get chased by ghosts from the past called golems.
As I recall, the golem is something of a invention of idol worship, where the celebrant wants to invent a god on Earth.
Immigration attorney Jason Dzubow used a cartoon image of a golem for a blog post on "The Asylumist" today, here. Dzubow, however, called the illustration a picture of Godzilla. (v. Bambi).
