.Physician-Writer Abraham Verghese to Read at Kepler’s

music in the park san jose

The Covenant of Water, Abraham Verghese’s latest novel, sweeps elegantly through the 20th century to tell a tale of multiple generations of South Indian women. Set on the exquisite Malabar Coast, the story centers on a young girl as she becomes her family’s matriarch. Originally from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Verghese took a radical break from a successful yet overwhelming medical career to attend the Iowa Writers’ Workshop in the 1990s—a risk that led him to publish his best-selling first novel, Cutting for Stone, in 2009. Since then, he has melded his interests to forge an innovative career as a physician-writer.
