Join author Susan Orlean for lunch as she discusses Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend. He believed the dog was immortal. So begins Susan Orlean’s sweeping, powerfully moving story of Rin Tin Tin’s journey from orphaned puppy to movie star and international icon. At its heart, Rin Tin Tin is a poignant exploration of the enduring bond between humans and animals. But it is also a richly textured history of twentieth-century entertainment and entrepreneurship and the changing role of dogs in the American family and society. Almost ten years in the making, Orlean’s first original book since The Orchid Thief is a tour de force of history, human interest, and masterful storytelling.
