Editor reviews

From childhood, writer Susan Orlean has maintained an undeniable love of animals, which she details in her creature-centric memoir essay Animalish. From the Westie puppy and butterscotch-colored mouse she had as a girl to the "Eggloo" she bought as an adult and filled with red hens that matched the hair of both her dog and child, Orlean's creature comforts are vast and varied. Narrated by Orlean herself in a manner that's both personable and affectionate, Animalish will reinforce in listeners a love for all things furred and feathered.


The life and times of a girl who has always loved animals, or how I went from dreaming about Rin Tin Tin to having dogs, cats, chickens, fish, cattle, turkeys, and guinea fowl, with guest appearances by horses, lions, and canaries.
