Today in Alternate History

Novelist Michael Chabon, whose latest book, The Yiddish Policeman's Union (Ecco Books/Harper Collins 2007), is a murder mystery set in an alternate Jewish homeland in Alaska.

You can read the first few pages of the book at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The Yiddish Policeman's Union is available for purchase at Amazon.com and as a thank-you gift for a pledge to WNYC.
