Margaret Atwood's Stone Mattress was a hit with me, so this month's Audible credit has gone on, Jane's latest recommendation, The Covenant of Water by Abraham Verghese, for all that it is over thirty hours long. Maybe I can dig out the Buetooth headphones and start listening to in on the exercise bike in the gym on cardio days?
Spanning the years 1900 to 1977, The Covenant of Water follows a family in southern India that suffers a peculiar affliction: in every generation, at least one person dies by drowning - and in Kerala, water is everywhere.
The author sounds like an interesting fellow. Here is the biography from his website.
