Take a look at Susan Orlean's contributors page at newyorker.com and you'll see that the topics of her essays have ranged from origami artists to treadmills desks. But take a closer look and you see that many of her essays—more than any other subject—have been about animals. A collection of those essays is available in a new book, aptly titled On Animals. Beth Golay recently spoke with Orlean about the collection for this week's Marginalia.

On Animals by Susan Orlean was published by Avid Reader Press, a division of Simon & Schuster.
