Product Description

This publication brings together in one volume, with a new preface, two bestsellers, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, two classics in which the humorist limns the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life - its fads, trends, crazes,morals, and fashions - without mercy. By turns ironic, facetious, deadpan, sarcastic, wry, wisecracking and waggish, Lebowitz makes for one wickedly on-target comic sensibility. (Fran Lebowitz still lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.) 333p.

Strand Staff Reviews

Strand Staff Pick

";Fran frequently shops at the Strand and was part of our 80th birthday celebration, giving one of the best toasts I’ve ever heard. She’s ironic, uproarious, unapologetic and an amazingly sharp observer of the culture and people that make up New York City — she is the Dorothy Parker of today. I only wish she’d pick up her pen and write about the last two decades of life in New York City!"; --Nancy Bass Wyden, Co-Owner Strand Book Store
