At the time that Verghese was living there, the city was still recovering from a World War II invasion by the Italians. For a brief period, the Organization of African Unity (OAU) presided over the area. Although the OAU claimed that they would bring equality to the people of Ethiopia, many still suffered and continued to live in poverty. Verghese did begin his medical degree in Addis Abeba, but when the Ethiopian leader Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed, political unrest lead to a mass exodus from the country in 1973.

Although these advances made Verghese feel elated, the exhaustion of the battle he had been fighting became too much—he left medicine behind to become a writer. The time that Verghese had spent focusing on AIDS had placed a great deal of strain on his marriage. Writing became a form of therapy for Verghese and he just couldn't shake off the enjoyment it gave him. He soon realized that his passion for writing was as strong as his passion for medicine, and applied to the Iowa Writers Workshop for a Master's Degree (MA) in Fine Arts.
