“I close my eyes and listen vaguely in a half sleep as he does the things he does before he sleeps each night. rushing and squirting and splashing. So many things. People and their rituals. They cling to things so hard sometimes.” –The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, p.8

    “If it is not too far-fetched a comparison, the sexual and cultural revolution we have experienced these past two decades is not a million miles away from the horticultural revolution that has taken plance in our herbaceous borders and sunken beds” (257)

    Irie, Magid and Millat shffled up nervously on the chaise lounge. Then there was a click-clack sound and when they looked up Mr. Hamilton’s teeth were on this tongue, as if a second mouth had come out of the first” (143)

    Oh, Cathy, that is so on my TBR list!!! It looks amazing and the passage doesn’t do anything to discourage my previous impressions. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Guatami, it’s been on my list for a while. I’m not loving it which is making me sad.

    Looks like a good one, think I read a review a while ago and it was positive too!

    The Art of Racing in the Rain is one of my all time favorite books! I gave it to everyone on my Christmas list last year. Enjoy!
