Dear Colleagues,

With a breaking heart, I am writing to let you know you that our vibrant, beloved Susan Kamil passed away yesterday from a sudden illness.

Her loss is shattering in so many ways. Susan was a brilliant editor, who guided her beloved authors through the creative process with the greatest insight, energy, and care. As a gifted publisher for the Random House lists, her leadership and generosity of spirit has had a profound and far-reaching impact. Above all, she was a deeply committed, endlessly supportive colleague to all of us—our unwavering, passionate champion.

I will share memorial details soon. Please forgive me if further words fail me at this time, other than to speak for us all in saying I will miss her dearly.



Gina Centrello
