Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk

review Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub It’s the last day of 1984 and 85 year old Lillian Boxfish is about to take a walkAs she traverses a grittier Manhattan a city anxious after an attack by a still at large subway vigilante she encounters bartenders bodega clerks chauffeurs security guards bohemians criminals ch. Kathleen Rooney is a goodreads friend of mine and over the past few months I have noticed a number of other goodreads friends reading her debut novel Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk I was drawn to the lovely cover and to the fact that Rooney lives in my home city of Chicago and that she has been named one of the city s up and coming writers during the past year That the subject is an often forgotten pioneering woman reminiscing on the events in her life has been an added bonus Reading about Lillian Boxfish s trip down memory lane has been an enjoyable experience that will stay with me for awhile Rooney s inspiration for Lillian Boxfish was the real life Margaret Fishback an accomplished advertiser for Macy s as well as a poet during the 1930s In this charming debut the reader encounters the classy octogenarian Boxfish as she sets out for a walk through Manhattan on New Year s Eve 1984 At each stop along the way Boxfish reflects on milestones in her life while sharing her charm with younger New Yorkers who she feels would benefit from her wisdom We meet a melting pot of New Yorkers who Boxfish feels contribute to making the city a great place to live while learning about the woman who was once a New York institution Boxfish and her best friend illustrator Helen McGoldrick attempted to break through the glass ceiling at Macy s long before women s rights picked up steam Although these women helped make Macy s famous through their witty ads when they worked if a woman had a child her career ended Yet Boxfish desired to keep working and she freelanced at home during the baby boom era when most women were content as housewives Her verse rivaled Ogden Nash and her volumes of poetry sold almost as well By these respects Boxfish was well ahead of her time The older Boxfish encounters ageism throughout her contemplative walk as well as in her memories about a taped public television appearance about the history of women in advertising In both cases Boxfish is initially disregarded as old until people get to know her better Rooney has touched on a timely subject as many older citizens are viewed as feeble minded despite having the wealth of a lifetime of knowledge to offer younger generations Rooney s prose mirrors Boxfish s wit as she shares the wisdom of a lifetime during stops at New York landmarks such as Delmonicos Chelsea Piers Penn Station and of course Macy s Boxfish s charming story held me captivated as I read to its conclusion For a debut author I found Kathleen Rooney s writing to be exuisite I enjoyed reading about Lillian Boxfish as I uncovered the history behind trail blazing Margaret Fishback Perhaps as Rooney points out in her prose most people can not appreciate Fishback s wit but I found her poetry as well as the story she had to tell both humorous and intelligent Lillian Boxfish merits a 45 star rating and I look forward to reading Rooney s future work whenever that may be
