Book Two.

I got hold of this book through Book Crossing. I was drawn to it because of the quirky art and seemingly-random title. And… it was pretty funny. Nikolai is an 84-year-old widow who marries Valentina to help her acquire a British visa, and he gets much more than he bargained for. Nikolai is a hilarious character and was pretty much solely responsible for the moments i laughed out loud.

I liked the The Yiddish Policemen's Union, and his stuff before that, but since then, hey, he's writing for Disney...there are better writers.

Swamprose, think there's a mix up. The Yiddish Policemen's Union is by Michael Chabon. This book is by Marina Lewycka ;)
