Review for Travels in Siberia by Ian Frazier (Excerpt)

Frazier describes five of his trips to SIberia, the highlight of which is a summer crossing filled with camping, roadside trash, and pouty fights with his guide. The tone is light and warm, and includes reflections on Russian history and literature. Frazier exhibits an annoying, fussy childishness, making it easy to understand why his guide got so frustrated with him. Was that supposed to be charming self-deprecation or is he clueless?
