40s noir in Alaska - is it kosher? (The Yiddish Policemen's Union - Michael Chabon)
I've finished Michael Chabon's noir mystery, post-divorce love story, comdey, historical revisionist novel The Yiddish Policemen's Union. It is 400 pages, fast-moving and funny. Chabon mines the incongruous marriage of noir, Alaska, and Yiddish-speaking Jewish culture for every comic possibility and he does create characters I cared about. See my complete review here.
