The Fran Lebowitz ReadereBook - 1994
A Martin Scorsese Picture
Now an HBO® Documentary Film
The Fran Lebowitz Reader brings together in one volume, with a new preface, two bestsellers, M etropolitan Life and Social Studies , by an "important humorist in the classic tradition" ( The New York Times Book Review ) who is "the natural successor to Dorothy Parker" (British Vogue ). 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, she is always wickedly entertaining.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
THE FRAN LEBOWITZ READER contains two of the satirists most popular works: METROPOLITAN LIFE and SOCIAL STUDIES. While METROPOLITAN marked her debut, SOCIAL STUDIES cemented her reputation as the ultimate wry New Yorker. No one and no subject is off limits, and if you're a fan of quirky wit fermented in the burroughs of New York City, THE READER is a must have.
