Biografía breve
Garth Stein is an American author and film producer from Seattle, Washington. Widely known as the author of the novel The Art of Racing in the Rain, Stein is also a documentary film maker, playwright, teacher, and amateur racer.

Stein has worked as a director, producer and/or writer of documentary films, several of which won awards. In 1991, he co-produced an Academy Award winning short film, The Lunch Date. He then co-produced The Last Party, a film commentating on the 1992 Democratic National Convention. Stein also produced and directed a documentary about his sister's brain surgery, entitled When Your Head's Not a Head, It's a Nut.

After films, Stein took up creative writing. At one time, he taught creative writing at Tacoma School of the Arts. His published works include three books and two plays. Brother Jones, his first play, was produced in Los Angeles, California in 2005. Garth wrote another play (No One Calls Me Mutt Anymore, 2010) for the theatrical department at his alma mater, Shorewood High School in Shoreline, WA.

Stein's third novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain (Harper, 2008) became a New York Times bestseller, a #1 BookSense Pick., and winner of a 2009 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award.

The novel follows the story of Enzo, a race car-obsessed dog who believes he will be reincarnated as a human. While his owner, race car driver Denny Swift, teaches him about the art of racing, most of Enzo's ideas and knowledge— including the Mongolian legend that a dog who is prepared will be reincarnated in its next life as a human— come from watching television.

Stein was inspired to write the book after viewing a documentary on Mongolia called State of Dogs and after hearing a reading of the Billy Collins poem "The Revenant," told from a dog's point of view.

The racing experience and insights of the novel's protagonist, Enzo, and his owner Denny are based on Stein's own experience racing cars. Stein moved from New York City to Seattle in 2001 and became involved in "high performance driver education," received his racing license with the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), won the points championship in the Northwest Region Spec Miata class in 2004, and left racing after a serious crash — while racing in the rain.

Cuando Jenna Rosen abandona su cómoda vida en Seattle para visitar Wrangell, Alaska, supone una desgarradora vuelta al pasado. Hogar hace mucho tiempo de su abuela nativa americana, Wrangell se halla cerca del complejo turístico Thunder Bay, donde el joven hijo de Jenna, Bobby, desapareció hace dos años. Nunca se encontró su cuerpo, y ella está decidida a enterrar el doloroso misterio de su muerte. Pero necesita respuestas y armada sólo con los feroces instintos de protección de una madre, la búsqueda de Jenna de la verdad sobre su hijo –y la fuerza de su fe– está a punto de arrastrarla a un aterrador y trascendental abismo…… (más)

Enzo sabe que él no es como los demás perros. Él es un pensador de alma casi humana. Denny Swift es un joven y prometedor piloto de carreras de quien Enzo ha obtenido una amplia comprensión de la condición humana y del que ha aprendido que la vida, al igual que las carreras, no es una cuestión de velocidad. Es posible superar con éxito todas las pruebas de la existencia con las técnicas necesarias para competir en la pista de carreras.

Un poco triste pero al mismo tiempo esperanzador. Muy recomendable.
