Fran Lebowitz still lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.
"A great read." -Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC's Tonight Show
On METROPOLITAN LIFE
"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
"Her humor made me laugh aloud and call friends to read passages to them." -Newsweek
On SOCIAL STUDIES
"Right on the mark.... Among the things she hates this time...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
