Garth Stein is the internationally bestselling author of the contemporary classic, The Art of Racing in the Rain, the story of a beloved philosopher dog named Enzo who teaches us everything we need to know about being human. The book was adapted into a major motion picture starring Kevin Costner, Milo Ventimiglia, and Amanda Seyfried. The Art of Racing in the Rain has sold more than 6 million copies world-wide, been translated into 36 languages, and spent more than three years on the New York Times bestseller list, topping out at #1. The novel inspired a Young Reader edition as well as four children’s picture books, and a stage adaptation by Book-It Repertory Theatre in Seattle.
For his latest project, Garth has collaborated with illustrator Matthew Southworth (Stumptown) on The Cloven, a graphic novel trilogy set in the near-future that explores the themes of genetic engineering, disinformation, income inequality, homelessness, diversity, and belonging.
