about this item
Enzo, a philosophical dog eager to be reincarnated as a human, serves as a faithful companion to race-car driver Denny Swift, as he navigates both his racing career, and the many road-bumps in his family life. A bestselling novel and Starbucks book pick, THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN is a charming, uplifting, and absurd novel about the power of canine camaraderie in the face of life's many hardships.
Evaluating his life on the eve of his death, atypical canine Enzo considers the sacrifices his master, Denny Swift, has made in his pursuit of becoming a professional race car driver; the painful custody battle between Denny and his in-laws, and the dog's own efforts to preserve the Swift family. 200,000 first printing.
