The Art of Racing in the Rain!

From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, we learned about a new book being released by Garth Stein called The Art of Racing in the Rain.

About the book:

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.

Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life's ordeals.

On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through. Having learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime, when he is sure he will return as a man.

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it.
There are lots of new books coming out for Summer featuring pups. So we thought we would bring you some of the ones we find that we think you may have an interest. This is just the first one, barring any used cisco router problems, we'll be bringing you more throughout the coming weeks, so you can load up on your summer reads!

Here is a video promo for the book, enjoy!


  1. Loved that video! I wish more dogs would come back as men 'cause the men here need some improvement!...(or so Mom says).
    Hey, what comes back as women? (hope it's not cats 'cause Mom surely wasn't one 'cause she's allergic to 'em)


  2. That looks like quite an unusual book. We'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for barking in!
