Feeling tense

While Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policeman's Union didn't win the Edgar, it did win a Nebula, and it is still up for a Hugo. Since I am going to Worldcon and voting in the Hugos, I decided I should read it. How often does a book get this much multi-genre buzz?

So I started it last night . . . and it's present tense! Argh! How can you do this to me, Michael Chabon! I don't care if a book is first person or third (although I find second person annoying for anything except short works), but I loathe present tense.

And it's 411 pages long!
