Abraham Verghese In India Working On New Novel

Abraham Verghese

Abraham Verghese is one of my favorite authors. We have stayed in touch over the past few years. He’s been tossing ideas around for his next novel. And has come to the conclusion that he will set it in Kerala, India, the birthplace of his parents.

I love that this new novel will be in a part of India that has been only marginally written about. He has been visiting and doing research for some time now. He is having fun doing the groundwork. This is where his roots are. It is in his blood. Lucky for us.

Abraham Verghese

Abraham Verghese is the author of three books: CUTTING FOR STONE; THE TENNIS PARTNER; MY OWN COUNTRY. He’s a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. And he teaches medicine at Stanford in California, as well as practices medicine.

I can almost picture Dr. Verghese doing his research in India. We are going to be in for such a treat with his next novel!

  1. Our book club discussed Cutting For Stone last year and loved it. It is a part of my permanent book collection. I’ve read it twice and think it is an exceptional novel
