A New York Times Bestselling Author
In On Animals, Susan Orlean examines animal-human relationships through the compelling tales she's written over the course of her career. In her own backyard, Orlean discovers the delights of keeping chickens. In a different backyard, she meets a woman who has 23 pet tigers. In Iceland, the world's most famous whale resists the efforts to set him free; in Morocco, the world's hardest-working donkeys find respite at a special clinic. We meet a show dog and a lost dog and a pigeon who knows exactly how to get home. Equal parts delightful and profound, these stories celebrate the meaningful cross-species connections that grace our collective existence.
