November Book: Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Vergese
While a handful of us didn't finish the book in time for BC, the overall impression of Abraham Vergese's book was a positive one. Verghese manages to keep you turning the pages through time and through the stories of various people whose lives are touched by twin brother's and their life story. It's a hefty book, but worth reading if you have time.
Since we ate out for dinner this BC, I have no menu to present other than to encourage people of the Bay Area to patronize the fabulous establishment of Amsara Ethiopian on Telegraph Ave! Their Veggie Combo is fantastic and worth eating on a weekly basis.
