Book D source code Committed
"Told with Gilbert’s trademark wit, intelligence and compassion, Committed attempts to “turn on all the lights” when it comes to matrimony, frankly examining questions of compatibility, infatuation, fidelity, family tradition, social expectations, divorce risks and humbling responsibilities. Gilbert’s memoir is ultimately a clear-eyed celebration of love with all the complexity and consequence that real love, in the real world, actually entails."
Book Cutting for Stone (a Novel)
What an amazing saga across generations and geography!! From India to Ethiopia to America, and back to Ethiopia, plus some other places in between. It is an engrossing read, rich with emotions and details (including some medical details, as main characters are all medical doctors). I found the part about the life in Ethiopia particularly interesting, as it is so rare to read about the geography and political history of Ethiopia. Superbly written, the book satisfies both the mind and the heart.
