Sue’s September Recommendation

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

“My book recommendation is Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese.  Verghese is a renowned physician as well as a graduate of the Iowa
Writers Workshop. He writes eloquently about matters of the human body as well as the human heart.  Set in Ethiopia and spanning 40+ years,
it is an epic story of twin Indian brothers, whose lives are inescapably intertwined with each other and with the lives of the staff and patients at the mission hospital where they are born.  It is
a beautiful and engaging story about the duality of the human condition–love and betrayal, selfishness and self-sacrifice,
accusation and forgiveness, and life and death.

Read about it or request it from the library catalog.

In the library, this book is located at CALL # FICTION VERGHESE.
