The Final Solution: A Story Of Detection

Michael Chabon

This was a short and melancholy book, sharp and precise and thoroughly enjoyable, about obscurity and aging, terrible things that can happen and things that help us cope. It felt quaint and formal, in a sense mimicking the age it was set it. There was a brief section that was jarring in the sudden clumsiness of the language – it is noticeable in a book this small – but otherwise, it was as good as Chabon always is.
