Amazon Exclusive: John Irving Reviews Cutting for Stone

John Irving has been nominated for a National Book Award three times--winning once, in 1980, for the novel The World According to Garp. In 1992, Irving was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater, Oklahoma. In 2000, he won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Cider House Rules--a film with seven Academy Award nominations. Read his exclusive Amazon guest review of Cutting for Stone:

That Abraham Verghese is a doctor and a writer is already established; the miracle of this novel is how organically the two are entwined. I’ve not read a novel wherein medicine, the practice of it, is made as germane to the storytelling process, to the overall narrative, as the author manages to make it happen here. The medical detail is stunning, but it never overwhelms the humane and narrative aspects of this moving and ambitious novel. This is a first-person narration where the first-person voice appears to disappear, but never entirely; only in the beginning are we aware that the voice addressing us is speaking from the womb! And what terrific characters--even the most minor players are given a full history. There is also a sense of great foreboding; by the midpoint of the story, one dreads what will further befall these characters. The foreshadowing is present in the chapter titles, too--‘The School of Suffering’ not least among them! Cutting for Stone is a remarkable achievement.--John Irving

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Random House UK | Marion und Shiva werden als siamesische Zwillingssöhne einer geheimen Liaison zwischen einer indischen Nonne und einem britischen Chirurgen am Missing-Krankenhaus in Addis Abeba, Äthiopien, geboren. Die Mutter stirbt noch bei der Geburt, ihr Vater verlässt sie. Marion und Shiva sind jedoch auf außergewöhnliche Weise miteinander verbunden und teilen die Faszination für die Medizin. Aber als sie sich leidenschaftlich in die gleiche Frau verlieben, reisst es sie auseinander. Marion verlässt sein Heimatland, um in Amerika als Arzt zu arbeiten. Doch dann holt ihn die Vergangenheit ein und er muss sein Leben den zwei Menschen anvertrauen, denen er am meisten misstraut: Seinem Vater, der ihn einst verließ, und seinem Bruder, der ihn betrog. Episch und unvergesslich - das Erstlingswerk von Abraham Verghese. An enthralling, exotic saga spanning five decades and three continents, rife with forbidden love and desire; betrayals, murder, medicine and family secrets. | My brother, Shiva, and I came into the world in the late afternoon of the twentieth of September in the year of grace 1954. We took our first breaths in the thick air of Addis Ababa, capital city of Ethiopia. Bound by birth, we were driven apart by bitter betrayal. No surgeon can heal the would that divides two brothers.
