Michael Chabon’s alternate history, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, won this year’s Hugo Award for best novel. The Hugo’s are awarded to writers in the science fiction genre. The novel also won a Nebula award, another science fiction accolade. Chabon’s book was nominated for an Edgar Award (mystery genre), but did not win.
The Yiddish Policemen’s Union is also in pre-production to be filmed by the Coen Brothers. I am beside myself.
Chabon – is there anything that he can’t do?
