Abstract:

What if - as Franklin Roosevelt once proposed - Alaska, not Israel, had become the homeland for the Jews after World War II? In Michael Chabon's Yiddish-speaking 'Alyeska', Detective Meyer Landsman discovers the corpse of a heroin-addled chess prodigy. Suspicion falls upon Rebbe Gold, leader of a secretive sect. But behind Rebbe looms an even larger shadow. Meyer is determined to unsnarl the meaning behind the murder. Even if that means surrendering his badge and his dignity to the chief of Sitka's homicide unit - also known as his fearsome ex-wife.
