Fran Lebowitz still lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.
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
