At The Heart of the Universe: Geography is destiny

Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone

At the Heart of the Universe is poignant and tender, a novel about love, about parenting and the nature of home. Shem’s insights about China and about character remind us that geography is destiny. This is a lovely, transformative story.”

Great respect for Abraham Verghese who is “senior associate chair and professor for the Theory and Practice of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine. Cutting for Stone is his most recent book and his first novel. It is an epic love story, medical story and family saga. It appeared in hardback in 2009, and is in its 9th printing and is being translated into 16 languages. It is a Vintage paperback and has remained on the New York Times bestseller list for over 110 weeks at this writing.”

Bravo!
