Words and ImagesSteinbeck s A Russian Journal first published in April 1948 was in a significant way similar to The Log from the Sea of Cortez originally published three years later in 1951 both books were collaborative efforts Whereas Cortez was a collaboration between a journalist and a scientist the earlier Russian adventure was that of writer and photographer Although an eyewitness account of journalist Steinbeck s and photographer Capa s travels through Russia Ukraine and Georgia at the cusp of the Cold War A Russian Journal is a work of art and literature beautifully written and wonderfully documented with images of historical significance and everyday life It is educational fun and inspiring I enjoyed comparing Capa s photos and Steinbeck s descriptions of the photos All of the real people in the book were described with such skill by Steinbeck that they resembled well developed characters from a novel Wherever Steinbeck journeyed he captured the spirit of the times and the spirit of place brilliantly After I finished reading the book I felt like I had been to all the places and met all the people

Right after WWII people in America were curious about the Soviet Union in a big way It coincided with a time when author John Steinbeck and world renowned photographer Robert Capa were at a loss for what to do next A scheme was hatched up to do a bit of light investigative journalism and see what was up with post war RussiaThis wasn t political so much as a social call Steinbeck and Capa really just wanted to see what was going on in the lives and minds of the people They went to MoscowAnd they visited farmers in the provincesOne thing you ll notice from the above photos besides the ubiuitous recurrence of Stalin is the general lack of men A generation of males had been lost to war and the remaining women were left to carry on ImpressionsThe people of Moscow came off as cold and officious Everything needed to be categorized and catalogued Steinbeck describes one meal in which hours elapsed before food hit the table not because the cooks were slow Rather the paperwork that needed to be filled out and distributed to the proper authorities delayed the kitchen from even beginning The country farmers though less educated seemed freer and happier even if they were worked ragged due to a lack of mechanization that had been available to them pre war However they were welcoming and generousAs it turns out right after WWII just about all people in Russia were curious about Americans in a big way and they had many uestions for Steinbeck and Capa so many that at times it seemed the journalists were becoming the story Those interested in either gentlemen will enjoy some of the slight insights given herein I ve noted in his other autobiographical work that Steinbeck comes off as an impish trickster at timesthough his friends might just flat out call him evil Nonetheless his sense of fun brings a welcome lightness to the text This is not to say the text is particularly heavy In fact this is uite a light read Steinbeck seems to strike a good balance of post war doom and gloom with hope and promise for a brighter future while relating it all in the easy going manner of a master storyteller This may be outdated and not give you an idea of what Russia s like today but it s a nice sample of a recent historical time and place Highly recommendedA Capa and Steinbeck selfieI apologize if not all photos are from this book as websites like Pinterest have begun to make online photo attribution rather difficult
