It was a call from an animal control officer about a neglected donkey named Simon that set off a chain of events, forever changing New York Times bestselling author Jon Katz’s outlook on mercy and compassion. In his latest heartwarming and heartrending memoir, Saving Simon, Jon examines the depths of the human-animal bond with his trademark grace, strength and skill. Simon taught Jon the true significance of compassion and how to open up ‘not just to [Simon], not just to animals, but to the human experience. Jon Katz has written twenty-six books, including works of nonfiction, novels, short stories, and books for children; he is also a photographer. He has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Slate, Rolling Stone, and the AKC Gazette, and has worked for CBS News, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
