Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk

It's December 31, 1984, and eighty-five-year-old Lillian Boxfish is preparing for her annual New Year's Eve routine: an early dinner at her favorite restaurant, then early to bed with a book. But what begins as a sedate evening out morphs into a lifetime retrospective, as Lillian's one-block stroll stretches into a ten-mile wander around Manhattan—and an unforgettable journey through a lifetime of memories. From her arrival in New York as an ambitious twentysomething to her first job at R. H. Macy's department store to her dual careers as a commercially successful poet and the highest-paid female advertising writer in the country—as well as marriage, motherhood, and divorce—Lillian's walk down memory lane makes for an introspective and ultimately uplifting journey. Based loosely on a real person, this engaging novel is a celebration of a remarkable woman. (KG)
