“To a base of Huck Finn, add some Lenny Bruce and Oscar Wilde and Alexis de Tocqueville, a dash of cab driver, an assortment of puns, minced jargon, and top it off with smarty-pants. Serve without whine.” —The New York Times
In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators. A cultural critic, raconteur and keen observer of human nature, Lebowitz first hit the New York literary scene in the early 1970s when Andy Warhol hired her to write a column for Interview. Often described as a modern-day Dorothy Parker, she is the author of two best-selling books of essays, Metropolitan Life (1978) and Social Studies (1981), and has been a contributing editor to Vanity Fair since 1997. Known for her often outrageous (and outrageously funny) positions on current affairs and culture, she is a frequent guest on various talk shows including those hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien and Bill Maher and was the subject of a 2010 Martin Scorsese documentary Public Speaking.
