"Seductively heady . . . Ingeniously explores the unfathomable mysteries of the heart." --Philadelphia Inquirer A young Israeli intern vying for the position of surgeon learns that his internship has been terminated and he has been chosen to accompany the hospital administrator and his wife on a trip to India. There, the couple intend to retrieve their ailing daughter and bring her back to Israel. The long journey awakens urges in the young doctor that will threaten his carefully contained world. Juxtaposing Western realism and Eastern mysticism, Open Heart is an "astonishing work about love in all its forms. [One that] speaks across the barriers of translation and culture to readers everywhere" (Washington Post Book World). "At times incantatory and magical, sometimes disturbing, and often astonishing . . . Entertains the mind while it captivates the soul." --Seattle Times "Mind-expanding and poetic, a book that will stay with you long after you have turned its final page." --New York Times
