LILLIAN ON LIFE ALISON JEAN LESTER

Lillian, a single, well-travelled woman of a certain age, wakes up next to her married lover and looks back at her life. It’s not at all the life she expected.
In Lillian on Life, Alison Jean Lester has created a brutally honest portrait of a woman living through the post-war decades of change in Munich, Paris, London and New York. Her story resonates with the glamour and energy of those cities.Smart, poignant, funny in the vein of The Best of Everything while being wholly original, Lillian on Life is as fresh and surprising as fiction gets.
MY REVIEW
Lillian, a single, well-travelled woman of a certain age, wakes up next to her married lover and looks back at her life.It’s not at all the life she expected.
I loved the short chapters. It is rare that you find a book that is extremely funny, so very easy to read and yet being so difficult to forget about a hot-blooded woman.
