The Fran Lebowitz Reader

Paperback

Price: $17.00

Overview

In the vein of Lebowitz’s acclaimed Netflix limited series, Pretend It’s a CityThe Fran Lebowitz Reader brings together two of the famed author’s bestsellers, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies.

In elegant, finely honed prose (The Washington Post Book World), Lebowitz limns the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life–its fads, trends, crazes, morals, and fashions. By turns ironic, facetious, deadpan, sarcastic, wry, wisecracking, and waggish, Fran Lebowitz is always wickedly entertaining.

Reviews
"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
