Susan Orlean: On Animals

In conversation with Maud Newton
Susan Orlean: On Animals

I was always a little animalish…

From lions and tigers to donkeys and dogs to rabbits and chickens and whales and pigeons, beloved New Yorker writer Susan Orlean always returns to writing about animals. Her new book, On Animals, collects a lifetime of musings, meditations and in-depth profiles.

“Of course, I will always read anything that Susan Orlean writes—and I would encourage you to do the same,” writes Elizabeth Gilbert. “Regardless of the topic, she’s always brilliant.”
