Imagine you’re chatting across the table with Garth Stein. He’s telling you all about his books and you’re listening in awe.

Yeah. That’s going to be me today on the show.

Garth Stein is the New York Times bestselling author of three novels:  The Art of Racing in the Rain (Harper, 2008); How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets (Soho Press, 2005), and Raven Stole the Moon (Harper, 2010).  For them, he has won two PNBA Awards for fiction, and The Art of Racing in the Rain has stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for three consecutive years. Garth has also written a full-length play, Brother Jones, which received its first production in Los Angeles, in February, 2005, and was described as “brimming with intensity,” by the L.A. Weekly.

After receiving his B.A. from Columbia College (1987), and his M.F.A. in film from Columbia University, School of the Arts (1990), Garth worked as a documentary film maker for several years, and directed, produced or co-produced several award winning films.

Born in Los Angeles and raised in Seattle, Garth’s ancestry is diverse:  his mother, a native of Alaska, is of Tlingit Indian and Irish descent; his father, a Brooklyn native, is the child of Jewish emigrants from Austria.  After spending his childhood in Seattle and then living in New York City for 18 years, Garth returned to Seattle, where he currently lives with his family and his dog, Comet.
