Title: The Yiddish Policeman's Chapbook
r: [ profile] Keenir 
Fandom: Yiddish Policemen's Union
Genre: Gen
Length: Short (Words: 1,026)

A collection from their scrapbook, you might say, of some candle-worthy cases.

Tiny glimpses of other cases Berko and Landsman worked.  It's cool to see them when its not a world-changing case.  Possibly, this is the only Yiddish Policemen's Union fic and that makes me sad since it's my favorite novel, but at least this one is good.  I'd like it if each section were just a little longer - some of the sections don't quite finish their thought - but others get right down to the big picture in a couple of paragraphs which is impressive.  I especially like that this fic makes the effort to emulate the complete culture depicted in the book through its use of language and cultural mythology and details of daily life.
