Auslander: Beware of God
I learned from this Jerusalem Post review about Shalom Auslander’s collection of stories Beware Of God: Stories. I was hesitating to include it here, but why not. Here is the relevant part of the review that qualifies the book for this blog:
“It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Supremey” is the story of a 37-year-old, low-level assistant in an insignificant branch of a monolithic corporation who acquires instant “wisdom” from a Kabbalah For Dummies book and ends up getting more than he bargained for when he magically creates not one, but two golems.
