Johnson City AIDS doc pens new book

verghese

In the early days of HIV/AIDS, Dr. Abraham Verghese was practicing in Johnson City, where he treated what most people would consider the least likely people to have AIDS–rural East Tennessee farmers and others. His first book, My Own Country: A Doctor’s Story, was a wonderful look at a physician encountering a mysterious disease as well as some funny stories about living in Johnson City.

Now he’s back with a new book, Cutting for Stone. The Washington Post has a great story on him today.
