Abraham Verghese’s expansive Cutting for Stone is a story of love, betrayal, compassion and redemption that spans continents and generations. The theme of forgiveness is interwoven into the story of Ethiopia with its mix of colors and earthiness.

The passionate, unique love affair that sets the opening of Cutting for Stone provides the setting for a delicate story of one family across five decades in India, Ethiopia and America.

Abraham Verghese is Professor for the Theory and Practice of Medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Senior Associate Chair of the Department of Internal Medicine. He was born in Ethiopia to parents from southern India.

‘Cutting for Stone owes its goodness to something greater than plot… Verghese creates this story so lovingly that it is actually possible to live within it for the brief time one spends with this book.’ Los Angeles Times.
