From the bestselling author of Cutting for Stone comes The Convenant of Water, a stunning and magisterial epic of love, faith, and medicine set in Kerala, South India.
A shimmering evocation of a bygone era, Abraham Verghese’s latest novel, fourteen years in the making, is a masterful literary feat—a hymn to progress in medicine and to human understanding, and a humbling testament to the difficulties undergone by past generations for the sake of those alive today.
Abraham Verghese’s acclaimed earlier books are My Own CountryThe Tennis Partner, and Cutting for Stone, which spent over two years on the New York Times bestseller list, was translated into more than 20 languages, and sold more than 1.5 million copies in the U.S. alone. It’s currently being adapted for film. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, Dr. Verghese practices medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine

“The novel is full of compassion and wise vision. . . . I feel I changed forever after reading this book, as if an entire universe had been illuminated for me. It’s an astonishing accomplishment to make such a foreign world familiar to a reader by the book’s end.”—Sandra Cisneros on Cutting for Stone
