Susan Orlean's The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup - a great collection of feature stories she's written and had published in various magazines. She tells true tales of several varied characters. From a female toreador, to a grown-up girl band that never quite made it, to a champion dogshow dog. She observes and brings us into their lives but never intrudes on their privacy. Also the author of The Orchid Thief, which I haven't read yet and am trying to get my hands on, Orlean's writing is vivacious and graceful.
