Michael Chabon’s The Yid­dish Po­lice­man’s Union is a beau­ti­fully crafted book. In an alternative ver­sion of events af­ter the World War II, Jewish refugees from Europe find a tem­po­rary home in Sitka in Alaska, which is about to re­vert to Amer­i­can con­trol. The plot is re­vealed through the voice of the Chan­dleresque Meyer Lands­man who ex­plores Jewish iden­tity with hu­mour and panache.
