Praise

“Everything about this brilliant debut cuts deep: the humor, the wisdom, the pathos. Claire Lombardo writes like she’s been doing it for a hundred years, and like she’s been alive for a thousand.”
Rebecca Makkai, author of The Great Believers
 
“In The Most Fun We Ever Had, Claire Lombardo has given us a truly unforgettable American family. The book bristles on every page with intelligence and fierce wit. What a debut!”
Richard Russoauthor of Everybody’s Fool and Chances Are…
 
“Lombardo’s impressive debut is a gripping and poignant ode to a messy, loving family in all its glory. She juggles a huge cast of characters with seeming effortlessness, bringing each to life with humor, vividness and acute psychological insight.”
Madeline Miller, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Circe

“What a splendid, spacious, gripping novel Claire Lombardo has written.  These pages sparkle with wit and wisdom.  I love the four difficult Sorenson daughters, each in the grip of her own emergencies. The Most Fun We Ever Had is a gorgeous and profound debut.”
Margot Livesey, author of Mercury
 
“Remarkably alive and wise, Claire Lombardo’s story of the Sorensons is a stunning vision–not just of family or love, but the funny, tender mystery of human connection itself, with all its intensity, charm, and wonder.”
Affinity Konar, author of Mischling

“A sharp, sly family story of feminine guile and guilt…A fun and brimming tale…Divine.”
Kirkus Reviews

“A family epic…It resembles other sprawling midwestern family dramas, like Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections (2001)…The result is an affectionate, sharp, and eminently readable exploration of the challenges of love in its many forms.”
