2011 didn't just bring literary success to Verghese. Later in the year, his contributions to literature and medicine were recognized at the highest point possible in the US: the President. The incumbent President Obama invited Verghese, along with other independent writers, to meet him so that he could praise their work. But his success didn't end there; celebrity homemaker Martha Stewart featured his book on her blog, proving that he can be a hit with all audiences. As the successes of 2011 have brought Verghese into 2012, his recognition only looks set to grow further.
