On a warm suburban night, the sound of lawn sprinklers is drowned out by the rumble of hot rods. Suddenly, a car careens onto a family's neat front yard, teenage boys spill out brandishing chains and leather, and a young man cries out for the girl he loves. Tonight, fathers will pick up snow shovels and rakes to defend their turf, and children will witness a battle fuelled by fierce and true love. This is the night they will talk about and remember as the moment that changed everything forever.

'A stunning work' Sunday Times 'A wonderfully unfettered, ample novel. One that celebrates voice, personality and feeling when so much fiction avoids those rewarding characteristics' New York Times Book Review 'That Night has universal appeal ... there is a depth of feeling here which is beautifully - and seriously - realised' Independent 'The author's perceptions of suburban life have a rich detail of the quality of a Cheever or an Updike' Los Angeles Times
