Publisher's Summary

Smart, poignant, funny, and totally original, Lillian on Life is as fresh and surprising as fiction gets.

This is the story of Lillian, a single woman reflecting on her choices and imagining her future. Born in the Midwest in the 1930s; Lillian lives, loves, and works in Europe in the fifties and early sixties; she settles in New York and pursues the great love of her life in the sixties and seventies. Now it’s the early nineties, and she’s taking stock. Throughout her life, walking the unpaved road between traditional and modern choices for women, Lillian grapples with parental disappointment and societal expectations, wins and loses in love, and develops her own brand of wisdom. Lillian on Life lifts the skin off the beautiful, stylish product of an era to reveal the confused, hot-blooded woman underneath.

Absolutely lovely

I’ll try to do a polished, professional review on this soon, but short & sweet of it—

I always feel this nostalgia when I’m reading books like this- an older person nearing the end of their life, looking back on what their life consisted of. It’s this specific feeling I always relate to lazy summers, spent trying to create adventure in the forest. This book is so good and just an absolute gem to have stumbled upon.
