Metropolitan Life book. I read this book when I was about 12 years old and immediately decided that when I grew up I wanted to be Fran Lebowitz. I still want to be Fran Lebowitz but I'm not so sure about the growing up part.

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.

Published by A Henry Robbins Book, . ISBN 10: 0525155627 ISBN 13: 9780525155621. Masterpieces of American humor, satire, and irony that no one, not even the permanently "writer's-blocked" author (she has since not published another essay collection), has surpassed. One would have to hark back to Lebowitz's mentor-predecessors in Dorothy Parker and James Thurber for fair comparison.

Frances Ann Lebowitz (born October 27, 1950) is an American author, public speaker, and occasional actor. Lebowitz was born and raised in Morristown, New Jersey, the daughter of Ruth and Harold Lebowitz, parents who owned a furniture store and upholstery workshop.

Fran Lebowitz: A relic from the 1970s returns! By Thriftbooks. com User, April 14, 2006. I'm doing it more for the lovability of Frannie Lebowitz, than necessarily her laugh-out-loud funniness.

Book by Lebowitz, Fran

If you want a good taste of the second half of the seventies, flavored by someone that watched the changes from the first half of the decade,you will enjoy this book.
It is one of the very origins of snarkiness.
Fran Lebowitz's work should NOT be OUT OF PRINT! Her work should be taught in schools. Do people still study the writing of essays? Do they still want to learn the cadence of wit? I laughed out loud while re-reading Metropolitan Life - one of Fran's "sports" is "getting the mail." Okay, part of that is affection for Fran, can't help it. I have to love someone who is still real. I love her work. I was inspired to re-purchase her books after seeing Martin Scorsese's Public Speaking documentary of Fran. I was astonished to see them out of print. The strange irony of this fact is that we get to see her speak more often and in more locations than she would ever lecture or read if she were raking it in from her books. It was obvious to me, while listening to her in the film, that she is still writing whether she knows it or not; she is such a natural.
It is dated, but it has HILARIOUS passages. Laughing out loud funny. If you like her, or want to know her style, get this.
