Reviews

"Billy Lombardo is a bard for those of us who feel too much." - Gina Frangello, author of A Life in Men

"Billy Lombardo's exquisite first novel shows us a fractured family the only way it can accurately be shown--through a fractured lens. The sorrow and honesty of this wise book is almost unbearable, but it's literature's best kind of unbearable, build upon a foundation of generosity, heart, and masterful craft." -- Patrick Somerville, author of The Cradle, (TV) Maniac, The Leftovers

"Billy Lombardo's Morning Will Come is one of the wisest books about loss and the numbness of grief I've ever read. A family faces the unbearable, and as readers we're taken to the edge of the abyss, surveying the emotional fallout. A smart and moving account of how people cope with every parent's nightmare, Lombardo's achievement is in arranging his narrative around the new unspeakable hole in the center of their lives, and deftly takes us through the heart-wrenching, heart-healing aftermath as the family stumbles past their bewilderment and grief to what lies beyond." -- CJ Hribal, author of The Company Car and The Clouds in Memphis

"Billy Lombardo's Morning Will Come is these things: exquisitely written, real, painful, and true. His talent for depicting the nuances of marriage and family is extraordinary; reading this, one feels as though Alan, Audrey and the boys are your close friends, about whom you somehow know a little more than you should. His ear for dialogue is spot-on, and his understanding of the human heart is profound. This is simply a lovely, heartbreaking book." -- Elizabeth Crane, author of You Must Be This Happy
