In the long-awaited new book Travels in Siberia, Ian Frazier, one of our greatest and most entertaining writers, reveals Siberia’s role in history--its science, economics, and politics--with great passion and enthusiasm. 

With great empathy and epic sweep, he tells the stories of Siberia’s most famous exiles, from the well-known--Dostoyevsky, Lenin (twice), Stalin (numerous times)--to the lesser-known (like Natalie Lopukhin, banished by the empress for copying her dresses) to those who experienced unimaginable suffering in Siberian camps under the Soviet regime. 

These individuals are forever immortalized by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in The Gulag Archipelago.
