Staff Reviews


This breath-taking first novel is full of rich incident and visceral (often literally) detail. It is epic in scope -- four decades, four continents -- and covers an operatic range of emotions. The narrator was born to a nun who died giving birth to him and a twin brother.

— Chris

February 2009 Indie Next List


“Cutting for Stone resists easy categorization -- it is just as much the chronicle of a bond between twin brothers and family as it is a book about medicine, or a story of grace. Verghese's carefully drawn characters are compelling and unforgettable -- this is a book you will have to share with others, if you can bear parting with your copy.”
— Meredith Allison, Brazos Bookstore, Houston, TX

Summer '10 Reading Group List


“This sumptuous tale is one of lives, fates, and destinies, how things separate are connected and how those connected are separate. Birth and death are at the outset - and then, pulsingly, heartfully, carry on companionably all the way through. Lifelong wonderings and longings bridge the geography and time spanned. This is like one of the great life-and-death, myth-and-legend sagas with war, famine, exile, love, betrayal, great tenderness and compassion, a cast of characters, and the work of some larger powers all going on.”
— Rick Simonson, The Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle, WA
