“One of the best books I’ve read in my entire life.” – Oprah Winfrey on The Covenant of Water

“Like Chekhov, Verghese is a doctor and is as authoritative about the workings of the human heart as he is of the human body.” The Sunday Telegraph (U.K.)

Dr. Abraham Verghese’s instant New York Times bestseller, The Covenant of Water, was released in May to widespread critical acclaim and was named Oprah’s Book Club pick. One of the most masterful literary novels published in recent years, the book is the long-awaited follow-up to Verghese’s previous novel, Cutting for Stone, which topped the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years, is being adapted for film and was named one of Amazon’s 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime. A distinguished Stanford professor and a prominent voice in medicine, Verghese received the National Humanities Medal from President Obama.
