[Enzo Races in the Rain!; TR 9780062295330] New York Times bestseller Garth Stein's picture book debut about the lovable dog Enzo from The Art of Racing in the Rain is a heartwarming tale of coming home. Fans of Bad Dog, Marley! by John Grogan and Charlie the Ranch Dog by Ree Drummond will delight in Enzo's unforgettable personality and funny antics. Enzo the puppy's action-packed adventure begins when he makes the journey from the farm to the city (bark twice for faster!), discovers just how big the world is, and finds the family that was meant to be his. Life on the farm is pretty quiet—except when he races the cars that come down the barn road. Because Enzo is fast. He knows he's different from other dogs. But people never understand Enzo when he barks, and it drives him crazy! Then one day Enzo meets a little girl named Zoë and her father, Denny, and everything changes. R. W. Alley's fantastic illustrations bring the beloved Enzo to life as he learns to adapt to life in his new home and discovers just what it means to become a family.

The New York Times bestselling novel from Garth Stein–a heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of a dog’s efforts to hold together his family in the face of a divisive custody battle. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life's ordeals. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made to succeed professionally; the unexpected loss of Eve, Denny's wife; the three-year battle over their daughter, Zoë, whose maternal grandparents pulled every string to gain custody. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoë at his side. Having learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime, when he is sure he will return as a man.

Der Roman „Im Licht des Augenblicks“ von Garth Stein erzählt eine poetische, atmosphärische und tiefgründige Familiengeschichte aus dem Nordwesten der USA. Der 14-jährige Trevor besucht mit seinem Vater das heruntergekommene Familien-Anwesen in der Nähe von Seattle, in dem sein Großvater und seine Tante wohnen. Trevor stöbert durch längst verlassene Zimmer, in Geheimgänge hinter Tapetentüren, immer auf der Suche nach Antworten, vor denen die Erwachsenen zurückscheuen: Warum verletzt man immer wieder die, die man am meisten liebt? Wie kann man Schuld wiedergutmachen? Wie schwer wiegt ein Geheimnis, das man anderen vorenthalten hat? Seit Generationen scheint ein Fluch auf Trevors Familie zu lasten. Doch nun macht sich der gewitzte Trevor auf, die Wahrheit zu entdecken und auszusprechen. „Ich habe „Im Licht des Augenblicks“ verschlungen. Ein großes, wunderbares, Generationen umspannendes Epos, das im Nordwesten der USA spielt. Garth Stein hat uns erneut einen einzigartigen, gefühlvollen Erzähler für die Ewigkeit geschenkt, der uns in eine Geschichte voller Geheimnisse und Sehnsüchte mitnimmt.“ (Maria Semple, Autorin von „Wo steckst du, Bernadette?“)

Im nächsten Leben, da ist sich Enzo sicher, wird er ein Mensch sein. Deshalb beobachtet der kluge Hund die Welt um sich herum genau – und er kommt zu erstaunlichen Einsichten. Sein großes Vorbild ist Herrchen Denny: Familienvater, Rennfahrer und der zuverlässigste Freund, den ein Hund haben kann. Doch dann gerät Dennys Leben plötzlich aus den Fugen ... Denny und Enzo sind ein unzertrennliches Paar. Enzo liebt sein Herrchen über alles und genießt das entspannte Männerleben, geprägt von ausgedehnten Spaziergängen, lockeren Essensgewohnheiten und den spannenden Geschichten, die Denny von seinem Leben als Rennfahrer erzählt. Daher reagiert Enzo zunächst mit großer Eifersucht auf Eve, in die Denny sich verliebt und die ihr Leben völlig verändert. Doch er ist klug, er arrangiert sich mit Eve, denn er sieht genau, dass Eve für Denny noch wichtiger ist als seine große Leidenschaft, das Autorennen. Als die kleine Zoë geboren wird, begreift er sie nicht als weiteren Eindringling, sondern als Geschenk und schwört sich, sie stets zu beschützen. Eine Weile ist das Glück der vier perfekt. Zufrieden gibt sich Enzo seiner Lieblingsbeschäftigung hin: dem Philosophieren über das Leben der Menschen, ihr Verhalten, ihre Vorlieben und ihre Schwächen. Enzo ist davon überzeugt, dass er in seinem nächsten Leben ein Mensch sein wird, und so versucht er alles zu verstehen, auch wenn er vieles seltsam findet. Doch dann scheint ein Schicksalsschlag Dennys ganze Welt zu zerstören – und Enzo erkennt, worin die Kunst, ein Mensch zu sein, tatsächlich besteht. Enzo.

In einer Parallelwelt, nur erreichbar durch versteckte Zugänge und von Personen, die etwas von sich zu geben imstande sind, lebt das Volk der Berührten. Die Berührten sind einzig zu dem Zweck erschaffen worden, die Welt der Menschen vor dem Bösen zu beschützen. Ihre Namen verdanken sie dem daumennagelgroßen, halbmondförmigen Mal an ihren Körpern. Das Böse ist der Teufel und der rekrutiert unermüdlich verdorbene Seelen und steckt sie in menschliche Körper, um die schwachen Seelen der Menschen in sein Reich der Dunkelheit hinabzuziehen. Die Welt der Berührten diktiert harte Regeln und tödliche Prüfungen, und wer es jemals wagt, auf die Stimme seines Herzens zu hören, wird zum verachteten Verräter. Umara, Desra, Carvin und Tatum sind Berührte, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. Während der Bestand der kampffähigen Berührten sich unter dem unaufhaltsamen Anwachsen der Seelendiebe von Tag zu Tag minimiert, müssen Desra und Umara ihre tödlichen Abschlussprüfungen überstehen. Carvin wird als Anführer einer Eliteeinheit zu seinem bisher schwierigsten Auftrag ausgesendet, während der hundertzwanzig Jahre alte Wächter Tatum den Zerfall seiner Welt beobachtet. Der Flügellose, ein vom Himmel gelangweilter Schutzengel, ist von Gott dazu verdonnert worden, seinen Aggressionen auf den Grund zu gehen. Dabei wünscht er sich nichts sehnlicher als ein neues Leben.
