The Puttermesser Papers

Ruth Puttermesser lives in New York and yearns for a daughter. So she creates one, unassisted, in the form of the first recorded female golem. Labouring in the dusty crevices of the civil services, she dreams of reforming the city - and manages to get herself elected mayor.
