Ian Frazier, is a leading American humorist, travel author, and staff writer for the New Yorker. Frazier has published two highly-praised and funny travelogues: Great Plains (1989), about his explorations of the American Midwest; and Travels in Siberia (2010), a current bestseller about Russia’s “Wild East.” The New York Times reviewer called the Siberia book, “an uproarious, sometimes dark yarn filled with dubious meals, broken-down vehicles, abandoned slave labor camps ... and ubiquitous statues of Lenin….” Frazier’s other recent books include Lamentations of the Father (2008) and Gone to New York (2005).
