will always read anything that Susan Orlean writesand I would encourage you to do the same, regardless of the topic, because shes always brilliant But The Library Book is a particularly beautiful and soul expanding bookeven by Orleanean standards Youre going to hear a lot about how important this story is, for shining a spotlight on libraries and the heroic people who run them Thats all true, but theres an even better reason to read itbecause it will keep you spellbound from first page to last Dont miss out on this one, people Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love and Big MagicThis is a book only Susan Orlean could have written Somehow she manages to transform the story of a library fire into the story of literacy, civil service, municipal infighting and vision, public spaces in an era of increasingly privatization and social isolation, the transformation of Los Angeles from small provincial hamlet to innovative collossus and model of civic engagementand the central role libraries have always and will always play in the life and health of a bustling democracy Beyond all that, like any good library, its bursting with incredible tales and characters There could be no better book for the bookish Dave Eggers, author of The Circle and The Monk of MokhaSusan Orlean has long been one of our finest storytellers, and she proves it again with The Library Book A beautifully written and richly reported account, itsheds new light on a thirty year old mysteryand, whats , offers a moving tribute to the invaluableness of libraries David Grann, author of Killers of the Flower Moon and The Lost City of ZAfter reading Susan Orleans The Library Book, Im quite sure Ill never look at libraries, or librarians, the same way again This is classic Orleanan exploration of a devastating fire becomes a journey through a world of infinite richness, populated with unexpected characters doing unexpected things, with unexpected passion Erik Larson, author of The Devil in the White City, In the Garden of Beasts, and Dead WakePraise for Rin Tin Tin Fascinating The sweeping story of the soulful German shepherd who was born on the battlefields of World War I, immigrated to America, conquered Hollywood, struggled in the transition to the talkies, helped mobilize thousands of dog volunteers against Hitler and himself emerged victorious as the perfect family friendly icon of cold war gunslinging, thanks to the new medium of television Do dogs deserve biographies In Rin Tin Tin Susan Orlean answers that question resoundingly in the affirmative By the end of this expertly told tale, she may persuade even the most hardened skeptic that Rin Tin Tin belongs on Mount Rush with George Washington and Teddy Roosevelt, or at least somewhere nearby with John Wayne and Seabiscuit Jennifer Schuessler, front cover of The New York Times Book Review Magnificent Vanity Fair Remarkable Orleans pursuit of detail is mind boggling The book is less about a dog than the prototypes he embodied and the people who surrounded him It is about story making itself, about devotion, luck and heroes Ultimately, the reader is left well nourished and in awe of both Orleans reportorial devotion and at her magpie ability to find the tiniest sparkling detail Alexandra Horowitz, San Francisco Chronicle Deeply moving An unforgettable book about the mutual devotion between one man and one dog Scott Eyman, The Wall Street Journal Dazzling Susan Orlean has fashioned a masterpiece of reporting and storytelling, some of it quite personal and all of it compelling Animal related books have always peppered best seller lists Seabiscuit comes quickly to mindand this one will top such lists It deserves to, and also to work its way into millions of hearts and minds Carl Sandburg called Rin Tin Tin thrillingly intelligent and phenomenal The same can be said for this remarkable book Spectacular Chicago Tribune Epic Heartfelt An enormously satisfying story about a dog and the man who believed in him Carol Memmott, USA Today Stunning A book so moving it melted the heart of at least this one dogged Lassie lover Dont let the books title fool you Calling Rin Tin Tin the story of a dog is like calling Moby Dick the story of a whale Orlean surfs the tide of time, pushing off in the 1900s and landing in the now, delivering a witty synopsis of nearly a century of Rin Tin Tins and American popular culture The result is a truly exceptional book that marries historical journalism, memoir, and the technique of character driven, psychologically astute, finely crafted fiction a whole far greater than the sum of its parts Meredith Maran, The Boston Globe Its a story of magnificent obsession Nearly a decade in the making, combining worldwide research with personal connection, it offers the kind of satisfactions you only get when an impeccable writer gets hold of one heck of a story Deft Insightful Fascinating Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times Susan Orlean has written a book about how an orphaned dog became part of millions of households, and hearts, in a way that may reveal the changing bonds between humans and animals, too One of the many pleasures of this book is the historical breadth of the story Scott Simon, NPRs Weekend Edition Brilliant Orlean, a staff writer for The New Yorker, earned considerable critical praise for her 1998 book The Orchid Thief But if there were any book she was born to write, its this one The product of years of dogged research, its her magnum opus, a work filled with fascinating stories and stunning prose that is both compassionate and perceptive Michael Schaub, NPR Engrossing Delightful Olean finds much to the story than a man and his dog Its heart lies in her exploration of how a dog could come to embody the ideal of heroic devotion and, eventually, exist as an icon outside the boundaries of time Douglass K Daniel, The Associated PressAfter moving to Los Angeles, Susan Orlean became fascinated by a mysterious local crime that has gone unsolved since it was carried out on the morning of 29 April 1986 who set fire to the Los Angeles Public Library, ultimately destroying than 400,000 books, and perhaps even perplexing, why With her characteristic humour, insight and compassion, Orlean uses this terrible event as a lens through which to tell the story of all libraries their history, their meaning and their uncertain future as they adapt and redefine themselves in a digital world Filled with heart, passion and extraordinary characters, The Library Book discusses the larger, crucial role that libraries play in our lives.
