The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. So far I'm into it. It was a birthday gift from Stacy. Thanks Stacy! I ended up returning The Yiddish Policeman's Union to the library before I finished it. I can totally live without finishing that book. I've now given Michael Chabon 3 chances. I loved Kavalier & Clay but other than that I think I'll pass from now on, thank you. It's just not my thing.
