The Art of Racing in the Rain

If you love dogs and like fast cars, you might enjoy "The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein (Harper, $23.95). The book is written from the dog's perspective, and Enzo is not your ordinary Labrador retriever. He is smart, appreciative, perceptive, insightful and an independent thinker who can be cunning when necessary.

Enzo is not sure of his lineage. Although he never knew his father, he believes he was a terrier, a breed known for being a problem solver. His mother was "not supportive,” Enzo writes. "I was called the pick of the litter. I like to think I came from a determined gene pool.”

As a pup, Enzo was rescued from a litter by Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Enzo learns all about his master's career and occasionally rides with Denny, basking in the thrill of careening around a track at breakneck speed.

Enzo watches and listens as Denny falls in love with Eve and feels a twinge of jealousy. But Enzo is for anything that makes Denny happy and welcomes the birth of their daughter, Zoe, and even shows his protective nature toward her.

The racing theme permeates the novel, always told through Enzo's eyes.

Saudi Dog Taboo

The Saudi Arabia Religious Police has prohibited the sale of cats and dogs and their public exposure, stating as reason men's frequent use of household pets for making open advances to women.

The Chair of the Commission for Vice Prevention stated before the media that the measure was in accordance with the old religious law and is now in full effect.

The prohibition follows the last month decision of the Saudi Prince Satam Ibn Abdul Aziz, which has been accepted by the Vice Prevention Commission.

The Commission's Chair had not cited any other reasons for the prohibition of the household pets in his country except their use by Saudi men to court women.
