Six top books set on New Year's Eve & Day

The Times of India tagged six remarkable books set on New Year's eve and day, including:
Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney

The novel takes place on New Year’s Eve in 1984 and draws upon the nostalgia of times past that can be associated with the holiday. Eighty-five-year-old Lillian Boxfish is on her way to a party. She’s a woman who worked her way up in 1930s New York to become the highest-paid advertising woman in the country. As she walks around Manhattan, she meets everyone from bartenders to bodega clerks, security guards, and even criminals. And she reminisces the highs and lows of her life.
