Like Megan was making note, Chabon is incredibly dry and intelligent
so there must be a reason for the use of language throughout the
book. Was it to match the unorthodox view of Landsman? My sister is
plowing through Lamb right now and I also can't help but have the
feeling that this is Messiah or some lesser angel...
i will say that i am loving that they "speak" in yiddish, and chabon
only clarifies speech when it's in "american". love it. love the
patters of yiddish. does anyone know if chabon speaks yiddish?
