Product Details


“Orlean’s snapshot-vivid, pitch-perfect prose…is fast becoming one of our national treasures.”
—The Washington Post Book World

“Susan Orlean is a master of the quick sketch….She writes arresting, short pieces, serendipitous material that readers stumble across by chance, then read on, transfixed by the casual grace and beauty of these miniatures.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

“Through the power of energetic reporting and sharp writing, the national character is precisely what Orlean captures. She is a kind of latter-day Tocqueville.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Reading Bullfighter will leave you convinced that the world is much wider and stranger than you had thought and that the most ordinary-seeming people are often the most remarkable.”
—Us Weekly
