Cutting For Stone...

by Abraham Verghese. He has two other books both exceptional:

My Own Country: A Doctor's Story

The Tennis Partner

Cutting for Stone is fiction; other two are non-fiction that read like fiction.

Verghese is of Indian (India) descent; grew up in Ethiopia, is an MD, did residencty, etc in USA...parents were Indian Christians. Fascinating person and wonderful writer and doctor. Read Cutting for Stone first.
