Reviews

Hilarious ... an unlikely and perhaps alarming combination of Mary Hartman and Mary McCarthy.... To a dose of Huck Finn add some Lenny Bruce, Oscar Wilde and Alexis de Tocqueville, a dash of cabdriver, an assortment of puns, minced jargon, and top it off with smarty pants * The New York Times * Right on the mark ... Among the things she hates ... baggage-claim areas, high tech, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan * Newsweek * Unique .... Lebowitz offers vocational guides for aspiring heiresses, popes, empresses; manuals for landlords; guidance to the rich who wish to meet the poor * Vogue *


Author Information

Arriving in New York over fifty years ago, Fran Lebowitz made her name as a columnist on Andy Warhol's Interview magazine, before publishing two bestselling volumes of essays, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, which are collected in The Fran Lebowitz Reader. She is one of America's most insightful social commentators, a sought-after public speaker, style icon, wit and flaneur. Fran Lebowitz has collaborated with Martin Scorsese on two documentaries: the film Public Speaking in 2010, and the limited series, Pretend It's a City in 2021. Lebowitz lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.
