The Yiddish Policemen’s Union

I have known about this title for years but read it only recently. It sounds like a humor book, but it’s really a police procedural, a dark comedic treatment of the life of Detective Meyer Landsman. The work is set in an alternate world where the United States nuked Berlin, the Arabs chased the Jews out of Palestine in the late 1940s, and many refugee Jews live on a reservation in Alaska. I found the plot a little hard to follow, and the descriptions a little flowery, but overall enjoyed the work.
