The Art of Racing in The Rain by Garth Stein.. After you take a drive with Enzo, you’ll be running through those yellow lights. Here’s one of the best dog narratives ever to get in the race.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"The Art of Racing in the Rain is not an instructional manual. It if a fictitious novel that pulls at your emotions. Love, devotion, death and betrayal -- life's highs and lows, all paralleled with the sport of automobile racing and narrated by a dog name Enzo."

The Toronto Star

"If you've ever wondered what your dog is thinking, Stein's third novel offers an answer. Enzo is a lab terrier mix plucked from a farm outside Seattle to ride shotgun with race car driver Denny Swift as he pursues success on the track and off."
