Editorial Reviews


The Latecomers is a profound and philosophical novel about aging and connection, which offers hope and a new vision for how we as a society could age well. Filled with poetry and mysticism, the novel takes the reader on a journey from which he or she will inevitably be changed. -- Rebecca Given Rolland, author of The Wreck of Birds

The Latecomers entertains and enlightens in equal measures -- exactly what these dark times call for." -- Mark Spencer, author of An Untimely Frost

I found Rich Marcello's absolutely outstanding new novel, The Latecomers, gripping, original, thought-provoking, and very clever. I cared deeply about the main characters, and the book kept me guessing, kept me reading compulsively to find out what happened to them. -- Sophie Powell, author of The Mushroom Man

A deftly crafted novel by a master of the storytelling arts, The Beauty of the Fall is a consistently compelling read from cover to cover and very highly recommended for community library General Fiction collections. -- The Midwest Review of Books Fiction Shelf

WINNER: BEST CONTEMPORARY NOVEL 2017. Spectacular writing, interspersed with actual poetry, business vignettes drawn from life, and development of a deeply flawed, complex, and charismatic main character made this one of the best books I've read this year. For anyone with a technology background, The Beauty of the Fall is a must read. For everyone else, it's a present right now, even as fall's beauty heads to winter. -- Barb Taub for Rosie's Book Review Team

IndieREADER Rating: 4 OUT OF 4. THE BEAUTY OF THE FALL is well-named--it is almost a poem in prose about the ability of the human spirit to find beauty, new hope, and new purpose even through loss, grief and despair. THE BEAUTY OF THE FALL is a poetic book, which shows us the internal world of a driven, devoted, thoughtful and very human protagonist through grief and triumph, love and heartbreak...The author's writing style is thoughtful, almost lyrical, giving the book's events an emotional rhythm and deepening their meaning. At times, Marcello is perhaps a bit too idealistically optimistic, especially perhaps for the current political climate. But the warmth, light and hope this book exudes are still inspiring, even if it might be harder to get there from here than the author suggests. -- IndieReader

The Beauty of the Fall has a great deal to recommend it to readers of literary fiction: the excitement of a business venture, the poignancy of a primal loss and a host of unusual characters. Marcello doesn't pull his punches when describing Dan's self-destructive behavior (born of his grief and helplessness), nor does he force a happy ending. -- blueink Review
