Michael Chabon's unusual novel The Yiddish Policemen's Union is set in Sitka, Alaska, a place where the Jews have lived since the imagined demise of the State of Israel in 1948. In 2008, the lease on 60 years of safe-haven in the north is due to expire and the Jews must find a new home. At the same time, one of Sitka’s citizens has physically expired. Meyer Landsman, a down-on-his-luck Sitka policeman, is suddenly faced with the murder of Mendel Shpilman, a case that the powers-in-charge want closed and filed away. But for Meyer, there are too many loose connections and unanswered questions.
