I read today on Yahoo News that Michael Chabon’s Nebula-nominated alternative history/detective novel,  The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, is headed for the bigscreen.  This was one of my favorite reads from last year, so I’m excited about seeing this one translated to film. I’m curious to see what direction the Coens take with this novel — there are so many themes, it’ll be interesting to see where they focus. The cold/semi-rural landscape and tone are right up the Coens’ alley — I couldn’t think of better scriptwriters/directors if I tried.
