Chabon’s Sigh of Relief

Michael Chabon’s The Yiddish Policemen’s Union was officially published on Tuesday, and the book has already received its first award of sorts: a good review from the New York Times’ Michiko Kakutani.

Kakutani is a notoriously critical critic, but the truth is, I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a book that she’s liked, which leads me to believe that she’s picky and nit-picky, but not necessarily malicious.

If you’re in the mood for some more Chabon, check out the interview that Todd Hasak-Lowy did with the author on JBooks.
