by | Read by Abraham Verghese

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

A doctor from India, Verghese reads the story of his friendship with a medical student under his charge. With all their differences, their unlikely companionship takes time to coalesce. Verghese, married with children, and David Smith, a young, single student, meet on the tennis court twice a week. Initially distant and professional, they eventually forge a supportive bond. Verghese's accent is precise and clear, lending a professorial tone to the reading. He does a fairly good job with an Australian accent for the troubled David. Slow, sad violin music announces the transitions. A.G.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
