Michael Chabon, The Yiddish Policemen's Union (New York, HarperCollins,
2007). 59. Chabon never explains the cooling of the Nazis' genocidal ardor—
though it probably has something to do with their early defeat of the Soviet
Union's and Germany's own ensuing defeat, capped by the nuclear destruction of
Berlin, in 1946. 60. Chabon, The Yiddish Policemen's Union, pp. 88, 109. 61.

The desire to hurt, offend, or insult Yiddish scholars and lovers of Yiddish did not
make up even one atom of my motivation.'' One commentator suggested that ''Mr.
Chabon needs to learn more about both Yiddish history and language usage'';
Chabon took such advice to heart in his research for and writing of The Yiddish
Policemen's Union. JBooks (http://jbooks. com), which identifies itself as ''the
online Jewish book community,'' has several features on Chabon, including a

The Final Solution and The Yiddish Policemen's Union as Reflections of Golden
Age Detective Fiction Texts Monica Lott In The Final Solution (2004) and The
Yiddish Policemen's Union (2007), author Michael Chabon demonstrates both a
familiarity and respect for the classic detective fiction novel and a willingness to
engage classic tropes of the detective novel. I argue that The Yiddish
Policemen's Union is closer to fitting in with other works from the golden age of
detective fiction ...

3.3.1 Alternate History Integrated Neither celebratory of free will nor dismal with
regard to humans' control over their own fate is Michael Chabon's 2009 novel the
Yiddish Policemen's Union. In the version of history presented in the novel, a
Jewish temporary settlement is established in Sitka, Alaska in 1941, and instead
of seven million, two million Jews die as a result of the Holocaust. The fledgling
state of Israel, on the other hand, fails in 1948 after only three months of
existence.

Your last three novels, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, The Yiddish
Policemen's Union and Gentlemen of the Road, are heavily based on the
experience of being Jewish and on Jewish culture. And with The Yiddish
Policemen's Union, it's in the title; you can't miss it. Has there been any pushback
from editors or agents? MC: No, not at all. The reaction has been much too varied
to really summarize. Even among Jewish readers, the reaction has been
incredibly varied.
