Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Abraham Verghese

Fiction • 31.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Abraham Verghese is a rarity among authors--a gifted writer who is also a dramatic narrator. Once you listen to his nuanced, emotionally charged performance, you'll be convinced that no one else could have better captured the dialects, tones, and cadences of his mostly Indian characters. He also portrays a Scot and an American, among others, and adroitly changes his pitch for male or female characters. The novel is a monumental work of fiction that benefits from the author's fine ear, medical knowledge, and remarkable ability to make complex medical procedures and diagnoses central to this multigenerational story, set in the watery environs of India's southern coast. A long and immersive listen, this audiobook is a tour de force. A.D.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
