FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgRin Tin Tin: The Life and The Legend (Simon and Schuster)

New Yorker staff writer Susan Orlean spends years researching a subject.  Then she sits down to write a story that makes sense of what she's learned from immersing herself in her material. Here, she starts with dog-breeding in 19th Century Europe. A German Shepherd puppy born on a World War I battlefield becomes Rin Tin Tin, an international star. She writes with tenderness about the dreamers and grifters she discovers on the dog's journey.
