Susan Orlean is coming to the university tomorrow as a visiting author. I am very excited to hear her speak. I love the pieces she does for The New Yorker and I just bought her book The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup. One of my favorite pieces of hers is "The American Man, Age Ten." (The name of this article varies depending on where you find the text.)
I'll blog after the presentation and let you know if she lives up to the hype.
