Critical Praise

"The novel's elegant denouement and Sussman's fluid treatment of tough moments make this a keeper for fans of high-caliber weepies."

——Publishers Weekly

"Take a deceived man who thinks he doesn't want to live, and introduce him to a woman who thinks that if she has enough sex she might not have to die, add a good kid and a great dog, a wicked humor, and a clean prose style and you have a novel that's hard not to read in one sitting."

——Pam Houston, author of Cowboys Are My Weakness

"On A Night Like This is thoughtful, graceful and poignant, full of tenderness and toughness, blessed by a powerful sense of place, balancing the redemption of love against the terror of illness."

——Roxanna Robinson
