            Bookclub-in-a-Box Discusses Cutting for Stone, novel by Abraham Verghese
              

            Bookclub-in-a-Box Discusses Cutting for Stone, novel by Abraham Verghese (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

            By Herbert, Marilyn; Verburg, Carol

            Conjoined twins are born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The real beginning of the tale is the moment of their separation. This extraordinary book explores connections and disconnections of all kinds, starting with the boys' surgery and the loss of their birth parents on the day they a...re born. The plot is complex, fast-paced, and emotionally moving. Bookclub-in-a-Box looks at all that Verghese provides: history (Ethiopia and Eritrea), medicine (blood and liver disease), psychology (the search for identity), sociology (human relationships) and philosophy (of both science and religion). The narrative's real facts and descriptions are especially interesting for their thematic implications.
