After graduating at the Iowa Writers Workshop in 2017, Lombardo joined as an appendage professor University of Iowa. She’s teaching creative writing.
Even before her latest novel, her short stories were released in magazines, and one of them, I Only Want to Talk About the Nice Things, was the number one on Longform’s fiction list in 2015.
The Most Fun We Ever Had is the real work of art, and it was published in June this year. Almost immediately, it entered the New York Times Bestseller list.
It is a novel about four grown-up daughters of Chicago parents in which the author portrays all intergenerational relations. Their satire, bitterness, and foolishness are threatening to fuse old rivalities and ruin the lives they have created.
At the moment, Lombardo is working on a new novel. She lives in Philadelphia.
