Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk: Review

Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney

My Rating: 5/5

Rooney based her novel on the life of the worlds highest paid female advertiser of the 30s, Margaret Fishback. Our Lillian Boxfish, her background similar, 85 years old, walks through 1984 Manhattan on New Years Eve. She stops by old haunts, meets new people, and interacts with the living organism that is New York City. She reveals tales of love, loss, triumph, and defeat with heartbreaking humor and wit.

This novel is a flâneurs dream. Highly recommended
