Wow, I can't believe it's been more than a year since this blog began, but when I find myself announcing the paperback editions of books I blogged about in hardcover, I know it must be true. Last week Michael Chabon's acclaimed novel The Yiddish Policemen's Union which has already won a Nebula Award, was nominated for an Edgar and is still on tap to potentially win a Hugo Award, went on sale in paperback. In his highly imaginative novel, Chabon tells the story of Meyer Landsman, a homicide detective who finds his personal life in a shambles while the town he lives in is going through a total upheaval. For sixty years, Sitka, Alaska has been a home to Jewish refugees and their descendants who have lived peacefully without any outside interference. But now, control of The Sitka District is about to revert to Alaska and the citizens don't know what to expect. Chabon is touring now, check out the schedule to see if you can catch him in your town. If your book club is considering adopting this very discussible book, be sure to check out this great video on Borders website, of Michael speaking with a book group. You can browse inside the book here and here's the reading group guide.
