Any Questions For Me?|
I was looking for history and culture, but to be honest, it feels difficult to divide any facet from another. I think I'll start with Michener and move outward from there. Did you feel he was accurate and understanding of the culture?
Any non-fiction you'd rec?

I think Michener did an *amazing job* of understanding the culture. His main character is a non-Jew learning about Judaism and it's a great device.
The Wouk book is non-fiction and it's a good intro, albeit from an Orthodox POV. Another thing - depending on how interested you are - is that there are Intro to Judaism courses just about everywhere.
