When writing about Susan Orlean, it’s almost impossible not to want to write like Susan Orlean. For instance, I want to write in a low-key first person and begin by listing an assortment of interesting and seemingly random facts about her.

Susan Orlean has red hair. She lives in Studio City, California, and has a 9-year-old son who doesn’t care for chocolate and a 4-year-old Welsh springer spaniel who is not well trained but is still a good girl. Orlean has 270,000 followers on Twitter. She is a well-known author who writes for The New Yorker, and one time Meryl Streep played her in a movie. It was called Adaptation and was about the writing of one of her books, The Orchid Thief, except it wasn’t really based on fact and it was written by Charlie Kaufman and directed by Spike Jonze, the same filmmakers who famously turned the actor John Malkovich’s brain into a geographical location.

    The Official website for the RIN TIN TIN Line Dogs is www.HollywoodDogs.com. The dog treat website only has the domain and not the live LIne Dogs. Also, Orlean's book is slightly incorrect instating that only Flame Jr. appeared in the 1950s series, actually Lee Duncan used Rin Tin Tin II and Rin Tin Tin IV in the series. Rin Tin Tin II is the dog used in the opening sequence leading the horses. He was later replaced after an ear injury. Flame Jr. (JR) was used as a stand-in for II and IV in the series and did make appearances on behalf of Rin Tin Tin as Duncan's health began to fail.
