The Yiddish Policeman's Badger

I am beginning to wonder if there is an elaborate joke where completely different novels have been produced with identical covers and titles.

Looking at the amazon.com 1 star reviews, it looks to me as though many of these people have read the same crap book that I have, which is obviously completely different from the wonderful and subtle novel with terrific prose, terrific plot, terrific sense of place which many people have read.

On the other hand, some of the 1 star reviewers have clearly read a different crap book containing an irksomely large amount of Yiddish.

There may of course be more than three identically titled books doing the rounds.
