Praise

NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST

“A fine mix of compassion and precision…. Verghese makes indelible narratives of his cases, and they read like wrenching short stories.”
—Pico Iyer, Time

“A richly textured portrait of a small Southern town…. Immensely moving. In describing his own odyssey as a healer, Verghese displays rare candor and eloquence.”
USA Today

“Memorable…. Fascinating. We come away from My Own Country with an abiding admiration for the good and compassionate work  Dr. Verghese has conducted.”
—Michael Dorris, Los Angeles Times

“Remarkable…. An account of the plague years in America. Beautifully written, fascinating and tragic, by a doctor who was changed and shaped by his patients.”
—Perri Klass, The New York Times Book Review
