Garth Stein is excited and he should be! His new novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, will be released this coming week. It is a wonderful and heartfelt tale told beautifully from the point-of-view of Enzo, an uncommonly cerebral dog with a penchant for car racing.
Starbuck’s has chosen the book to be their selection-of-the-month, and Road & Track just published a great review of the work. It’s sure to be a sell-out summer must-read. I had the privilege of being offered an advanced reader’s copy by Garth and thoroughly enjoy edit. I know you will, too.
Canine fiction is become the “au courant” genre. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did. And while you’re at it thank Garth in person for imagining on paper this lovely tail…er, tale.
Garth will be appearing around the Northwest at the following venues:
May 13 – Starbucks Madison Park, Seattle, 7 pm
June 2 – Border’s Books, Tacoma, 7 pm
June 25 – Elliott Bay Books, Seattle, 7:30 pm
July 4 – Book Stop at the Gorge, Hood River, 5 pm
