On the hog with Frazier

Ian Frazier, author of Great Plains, On the Rez and Travels in Siberia, has a new collection of pieces out. Hogs Wild gathers together five years’ worth of reportage and essays, on subjects from the most dangerous bus ride in New York to the career of General Henry Shrapnel. It’s the kind of writing that The New York Times described as “observation backed up by research and marinated in rumination and wordcraft.” You can read an interview with the author on the excellent Work in Progress site, featuring writers published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

If you’ve not already read Frazier on Siberia, try the two-part piece he wrote in 2009 for The New Yorker.
