What if the Jewish people went to Alaska, instead of Israel after the holocaust” A dark, funny mystery.

— Kate

Fall '08/Winter '09 Reading Group List

“A hardboiled mythical/comic/religious/political page-turner of a novel. We're talking serious fun here. This book is playful, outlandish, and inventive -- and it's all pulled together with great panache into a wonderful reading experience.”
— Tom Campbell, The Regulator Bookshop, Durham, NC


In The Yiddish Policemen's Union, his first major novel since the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Michael Chabon delivers a gripping whodunit, a love story, and an exploration of the mysteries of exile and redemption.

This special limited first edition is personally signed by the author and numbered. The jacketed hardcover is packaged in a handcrafted wooden slipcase which is shrinkwrapped. A must-have for collectors.
