The Yiddish Policemens Union

This is author Michael Chabon's first book since his Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. Chabon is an immensely talented writer, making deft use of crisp prose, grand schemes and witty dialogue. Picture the rapid-fire banter of Raymond Chandler infused with Jewish humor and a Yiddish gift for language. It's one of the best books I've read in a long time.
