Praise for That Good Night: “That Good Night is a timely and important work: an insider’s view of caring for the sickest patients and a moving exploration of life’s impermanence.

Sunita Puri’s deft attention to language, both in her writing and in her work as a doctor, is a testament to the power of story, narrative, and context to help us make sense of life and its end.”—Lucy Kalanithi, MD, widow of Paul Kalanithi, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book When Breath Becomes Air “A profound meditation on a problem many of us will face; worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal.” —Kirkus (starred review).
