Staff Reviews


On Animals is a collection of animal writing from throughout the career of accomplished writer and life–long animal lover Susan Orlean. The essays here are all over the map, from diary-entry-like tidbits on her experiences with backyard chickens to a true-crime-esque story about a tiger hoarder in New Jersey to reporting on the use of mules in the military. Ranging in length and tone and spanning several decades, Orlean’s writing is personal, informative, and infused with an unselfconscious sense of humor.

— Rachel Watkins, Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA
