The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

The novel follows the story of Denny Swift, a race car driver living in Seattle, and his dog Enzo, who believes in the Mongolian legend that a dog who is prepared will be reincarnated in his next life as a human.[2] Enzo sets out to prepare, with The Seattle Times calling his journey "a struggle to hone his humanness, to make sense of the good, the bad and the unthinkable."[3]

Enzo spends his days watching and learning from television, gleaning what he can about his owner's greatest passion, race car driving — and relating it to life. Enzo eventually plays a key role in Denny's child-custody battle with his in-laws, and distills his observations of the human condition in the mantra "that which you manifest is before you."

    This was a great evening and a good book. I really look forward to picking up the Maltese Falcon this weekend and meeting with you all in SF! Please let me know if you'd like to carpool.

    I have a mate visiting from Australia and I hope it's okay that he comes along. I got him a copy of the book and he's loving it.
