From the author of the bestseller Cutting For Stone comes a deeply moving story about drug addiction, male friendship and tennis.
Born and brought up of Indian parents in Ethiopia, Abraham Verghese qualified as a doctor in Madras and is currently professor of medicine at Stanford University, California. He is the author of My Own Country, an NBCC finalist made into a film directed by Mira Nair and the bestselling novel, Cutting for Stone.
"Verghese is a fine writer, lyrical and controlled, and he captures the attachment between two men - its motives, its allure - with both precision and charm... Wise and compassionate" * New York Times Book Review * "A brave and heart-baring story" * Time * "Heartbreaking... Indelible and haunting... An elegy to friendship found and an ode to a good friend lost" * Boston Globe *
