“You can’t go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.”
Fran Lebowitz - The Reader

The Fran Lebowitz Reader

In the vein of Lebowitz's Netflix limited series, Pretend It's a City —The 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.

“A great read.” –Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s Tonight Show

“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

“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
