The Tennis Partner
The Tennis Partner tells an inspiring and illuminating tale of how man lives and survives- from the acclaimed New York Times Bestselling Author, Cutting for Stone.
Abraham Verghese, a doctor whose marriage is unraveling, moves to El Paso, Texas, to work at the county hospital. He meets David Smith, a recovering drug user, and medical student. The two men begin a tennis ritual that allows them to let go of their inhibitions and find stability in the sport they like as well as in one other. This doctor-intern bond becomes richer and more complex, more intimate than two men generally allow. Just when it appears as if nothing can go wrong, the dark beast from David’s past reappears, threatening practically everything Verghese has grown to trust and believe in as David spirals out of control.
“Heartbreaking. . . . Indelible and haunting, [The Tennis Partner] is an elegy to friendship found, and an ode to a good friend lost.” — The Boston Globe
