  • Starburst Review - Author Garth Stein is known for projects from an intriguing point of view. His 2008 novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, is told from the perspective of a dog, and hung out on the New York Times bestseller list for three years. It remains to be seen if the writer's newest project, The Cloven - a graphic novel with artist Matthew Southworth, a fellow Seattle resident - will reach such lofty heights, but the conceit behind the story is certainly fascinating.
