John Grogan — author of “Marley And Me: Life And Love With The World’s Worst Dog”

John Grogan — author of “Marley And Me: Life And Love With The World’s Worst Dog,” a memoir of sorts that chronicles Grogan’s adventures and misadventures with Marley, an irresistibly lovable but certifiably nutty Labrador retriever — discusses his approach to writing “Marley And Me,” his theories on why the book has become something of a phenomenon in publishing circles (shortly after its release, it landed on The New York Times Bestseller list, and as of this writing, has stayed there for more than six months, at or near #1 much of that time), that unsurprisingly Hollywood came calling and there’s a deal in place to make a feature film of the story, and more.
