The Yiddish Policeman's Union

I think it's possible that non-Jewish readers won't be as taken with this book as I was, but I think it's really an extraordinary work. It also seemed both more and less "political" than I'd been anticipating; there are lots of significant similarities and differences between Sitka and Israel, between our world and Chabon's, but everything's so richly and totally done that it doesn't leave you with an obvious take away "point" as such.
