Susan Orlean is an animal lover, and although she admits it on page one of her most recent work of nonfiction, the fifteen essays in On Animals is further proof that she is. The main characters range from show dogs to chickens to oxen to pandas. Her travels take her to Morocco, South Africa and Cuba.
Susan Orlean is a great writer of nonfiction. On Animals is heartwarming, interesting and humorous. She even makes taxidermy fascinating!!! I think anyone and everyone would enjoy On Animals, but especially people who love and respect animals.
One thought on “On Animals by Susan Orlean 288 pages”
