Speaking of new books (see previous post), the AT crew wants to put in a plug for Ian Frazier, a master of literary non-fiction. Anyone who has read Frazier's earlier books (Great Plains, Family, On the Rez) will know why we like—no, love—this writer.
Frazier's new book, published last month, is Travels in Siberia. We read a excerpt in The New Yorker some months ago and found it adventurous, funny and even instructive.
There's more on Frazier and his books at his publisher's website here.
