It’s New Year’s Eve 1984 and Lillian decides to spend the evening strolling her neighborhood of Manhattan. She dines alone, meets strangers, steps way outside her comfort zone, and lingers in thoughts of her life as the highest-paid advertising woman in the country. A love letter to city life. Lillian’s character is modeled loosely on the real life of Margaret Fishback, an advertising copywriter for R.H. Macy’s in the 1930s. This book is funny, perfectly paced, and full of wisdom.
