Dave Wood's Book Report, June. 17, 2009
Two novels merit your attention for your trip Up North, when rain is pounding down on the tin roof of your cottage and the fish haven't been biting for days.
"Cutting for Stone," by Abraham Verghese (Knopf, $26.95). Recognize the author? He wrote a fine non-fiction book years ago that described his experiences as a medical doctor in Tennessee. "My Own Country" was nominated by the National Book Critics Circle for best non-fiction of 1994.
