Since the age of six, when Susan Orlean wrote and illustrated a book called 'Herbert the Near-Sighted Pigeon', she's been drawn to stories about how we live with animals, and how they abide by us. Now, in 'On Animals', she examines animal-human relationships through the compelling tales she has written over the course of her celebrated career. These stories consider a range of creatures - the household pets we dote on, the animals we raise to end up as meat on our plates, the creatures who could eat us for dinner, the various tamed and untamed animals we share our planet with who are central to human life.
