I love Lillian Boxfish! What a wonderful character. She's brilliant, sophisticated, feisty, funny, creative, and vulnerable. Now a wealthy 84-year old woman whose son wants her to move to a safer place, she meanders through her beloved New York City on New Year's Eve, reminiscing about her life: from a 20-something advertising copy writer for RH Macy's , to the peak of her career as the most highly paid woman in advertising, and through her marriage, divorce and retirement. This beautifully written book is funny and poignant and will leave you wanting to join Lillian at Delmonico's for a steak next New Year's Eve.
