They do love reportages in Poland In fact one of the things I like the most since I moved to Krakow is that any given bookshop here includes a properly named 'reportaż' section Which is something unheard of in Italy and still rare in the UK Depending on the size and on the uality of the Polish bookshop the reportage section might host only a handful of titles most likely belonging to the excellent 'Czarne' serie on a single shelf or cover an entire wall from top to bottomNow put yourselves in my shoes Just like Polish readers do I love reportages However not being able to grasp written Polish complicated than what your average 5 year old Pole reads it's uite frustrating to stare in awe at those scores of potentially fantastic but unfathomable books most of them written by authors I revere Not to mention that sometimes the top shelf of the reportage section is simply too high to be reached from my glorious 170 metre tall I'll tell you a funny one here Once I asked for help to a bookseller assistant in order to check the price of a copy of 'Dukla' by Andrzej Stasiuk placed on a topshelf by saying 'Jestem niktim' which as far as my memory went was supposed to mean 'I am short' but actually sounds like 'I am nobody' 'Short' is translated with 'niski' She smiled shook her head a bit stretched her right arm and handed me the aforementioned book As it cost too much for my budget I left 'Dukla' behind but placing it on the penultimate shelf from the top as it dawned on me that 'niktim' didn't exactly mean 'short' Blush If there's a Polish Booksellers Association out there please pay attention diminutive people read as much as tall ones do and have their same rights to help themselves in your esteemed bookshopsAnyways back to the reviewThey know how to write reportages in Poland and two generations of Polish journalists have been publishing excellent books spanning the whole world I guess that part of the merit for the shining health of contemporary Polish reportage journalism goes to success gained by Ryszard Kapuscinski but the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza played an important role as well Jacek Hugo Bader the author of 'White Fever' works for GW just like fellow journalists such as Mariusz Sczygiel Pawel Smolenski Joanna Bator and many others Now the good thing of Gazeta Wyborcza is that it's a rare example of a bestselling national newspaper that manages to keep its uality standards high And employing great reporters giving them the chance to follow their own stories whenever they can helps in making the newspaper an interesting and widely appreciated one'White Fever' Biała gorączka is introduced to the international readers in its English translation as 'a journey to the frozen heart of Siberia' but it's much than that Jacek Hugo Bader JHB will forgive me to state that his crazy driving trip through Siberia from Moscow to Vladivostok on a sturdy customised Lazhik jeep made in the USSR serves as an eye catcher for those in the UK and the US who are unfamiliar with his foreign sounding and hyphened name There is indeed very little of Jacek stubbornly driving his Lazhik to and through desolate Siberia in 'White Fever' to be precise these travelogue bits can be found from page 5 to 31 and from page 297 to 320 That's itYou might wonder what did Jacek write from page 32 to 296 and the answer is plenty of good stuffWith the pretext of waiting for his second hand Lazhik to be given an extreme 'pimp my gear' treatment by Muscovite mechanics say Jacek Hugo Bader delves into the very little known Russian hippy community delivering a poignant and hilarious dictionary of their jargon history personal stories and beliefs And this is only the first tasty filling you can find inbetween the 'Siberian driving trip' slices of bread in the surprising flavourful sandwich made up by the Polish journalistIf all that you know about Russian music doesn't get any further than the raucous chansonnier Vladimir Vysotsky or the thorny for anoter Vladimir balaclava disguised Pussy Riots Jacek here fills the gaps Russian hip hoppers gangsta rappers anarcho punks Christian Orthodox rockers neo Nazi metalheads you name them and Hugo Bader interviews them all in his own fashionWhich brings us straight to a chief point JHB's writing styleUnlike other contemporary Polish journalists I read and appreciated so far chiefly Szczygiel Stasiuk and Gorecki Jacek Hugo Bader puts much of himself in his interviews I mean he expresses his own opinions in a colourful no nonsense way that might leave you surprised I don't know how much of this attitude is genuine and how much is fabricated on editing but I'd daresay JHB is a honest guyWriting about an extremely delicate and emotionally touching subject like AIDS and the millions of Russian people infected by the HIV virus due to lack of information appalling hygienical standards drug abuse and what calling libertine sexual behaviors might be an euphemism JHB doesn't beat around the bush Interviewing 'Miss HIV' Svetlana chosen as the spokeperson for scores of Russian sieropositive youngsters Hugo Bader poses just the right uestions but is not afraid to include personal remarks such as 'What arrogant bastards' 'Bloody hell' or scolding Svetlana on her 'proudly telling' him about the 'sexual blitzkrieg' of her HIV infected husband 'Sveta for God's sake'Now all this might sound out of place or even patronising but as surprising as it might look it works in drawing a portrait of Sveta as the actual person she is thus making the interview utterly engagingWhat follows are mesmerizing pages revolving around the semi forgotten area of current Kazakhstan where Soviets detonated around 300 atomic bombs both underground and overground between the from 1947 to 1963 keeping the local populace there as guinea pigs As you might wonder this is another hard topic to write about involving poor unemployed and desperate people who have been falling ill and dying by infinite variations of devastating cancer for fifty years Hugo Bader is simply masterful here and this 'The Study Aids Store' is the best short reportage I read in a long while Far less convincing is the interview with Mikhail Kalashnikov the inventor of the infamous AK 47 the assault automatic rifle that killed millions in the hands of armies and terrorists alike since 1949 I had already read an interview with the same guy who recently died written byDavid Remnick I guess but JHB by clearly showing his distaste for the certainly distasteful Russian engineer doesn't do a good job True at the time of the interview Mr Kalashnikov was a senile full of himself jerk and Hugo Bader lost his temper with his reticence but I still believe something better could have been written The half failure of Kalashnikov is than balanced by the fantastic reportage entitled 'A small corner of Heaven' where JHB visits the community founded by one of the three Russian 'living Christs' In their remote corner of Siberia Vissarion and his thousands of acolytes have built up a self sufficient religious community founded on the sometimes crazy don't piss in the woods It's forbidden sometimes reasonable teachings of a former militiaman who discovered to be no other than Jesus Christ Again this reportage brought to my mind bits I had read before involving Mormons Evangelicals and so called New Age communities Tobias Jones was that you but Hugo Bader makes it pitch perfectTo conclude with just before the second slice of Transiberian bread there's the reportage providing the title to the whole book 'White Fever' I liked it and cared about the ill fated Evenks people but to be completely honest with you I've found it a bit long winded thus losing some of my interest at the end The story of these Siberian herders who became relentless alcoholics self destroying themselves in the process due to the low tolerance of alcohol within their organism is incredibly sad and moving but the stratagem of the countdown used by JHB is ultimately too excruciating to bearWhich reminds me that this review lasted for too long and it's high time to finish itLet me tell you this if I were you I would go to the nearest bookshop look for 'White Fever' buy it and read it If you live in Poland that is incredibly easy to do Just hope that your copy of 'Biała gorączka' is not on the topshelf But I guess you're likely to be taller than me or at least with a better command of the Polish language

Biała gorączkaK tam I włazi gdzie ja bym się bał wleźć Ryszard Kapuściński opisywał imperium z lotu ptaka uchwycił mechanizmy myślenia zachowań procesów Hugo Bader opisuje imperium z perspektywy wałęsającego się psa chwyta mechanizmy myślenia zachowań procesów i na dodatek szczura za ogon” Mariusz Szczygieł report. I read this in the English translation and agree with one of the earlier reviewers If you are looking for a travelogue for Siberia then there are better choices But as a careful description of some of Russia's social problems the book is well worth the read Also while the writing style varies section by section there are some stark grim but still striking descriptions of life in Russia
