They really love him, the mensch

Another day, another glowing review for the new Michael Chabon.
Slate's Ruth Franklin is on board, the last paragraph reads:
"So far, the glowing reviews of the book—many of them written, it's worth noting, by Jewish writers—have easily outnumbered the pans. Here's hoping the welcome continues, and this haunting hybrid escapes the fate of ending up a curiosity of history. A book as tough-talking, scrappy, and open-hearted as this one deserves to find a home."
I only got a quarter of the way through, I wonder what I wasn't picking up?
Oh well.
