Well worth a read!

by Paul T on Jan 16, 2014

Interesting read. A physician tells a story of mentoring a junior colleague through their shared interest in tennis. The physician, with marriage problems, and his colleague with drug abuse problems. Some interesting clinical histories are used as subplots.

I wanted to read more of this author because I loved his book Cutting For Stone. I am not interested in tennis, but this book was fascinating even though there is a lot about tennis in it. Verghese is a very good writer and can make any tale interesting and compelling. I recommend it to anyone who likes good writing. It will be a plus to have an interest in tennis, medicine, and marvelous characters.
