Just finished a book that I would highly recommend by Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone. I downloaded it on my kindle, only because it was highly recommended by other kindle users. Not only was it beautifully written, but the story was fast moving and based on facts. I learned a lot about Ethiopia, fistulas, liver transplants, and what it means to be a family. It was just published in 2009 and is not in paperback. It would especially be interesting to readers with a medical backround. What a shock it was to read on the last page that the author works at Stanford University Medical Center and resides in Palo Alto. He could very well be a neighbor to any one of my family members still living there.
