Cutting For Stone / Nov 3 @ 6:00 / Ida & Roger

Publisher’s Weekly says “a magnificent, sweeping novel that moves from India to Ethiopia to an inner-city hospital in New York City over decades and generations”.

Another first novel. 688 pages. Oh my. Better get started.

The author was born in Ethiopia, studied in India, and is now a professor of medicine at Stanford. He was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist for his book, My Own Country. See Wikipedia and NYTimes.

Available at Amazon in paperback for $9 and in hardback at Powell’s.
