Fran Lebowitz  

Fran Lebowitz first hit the New York literary scene in the early 70's when Andy Warhol hired her to write a column for Interview. Almost immediately, she became a mainstay in the magazine world.

As a regular contributor to both Interview and Mademoiselle, she soon became a name associated with irreverent humor and urban wit.

In 1978, she published a book of essays entitled METROPOLITAN LIFE. The New York Times wrote " unlikely and perhaps alarming combination of Mary Hartman and Mary McCarthy."

She followed this with a second book, in 1981, of equally sardonic essays - SOCIAL STUDIES. Both books were New York Times best-sellers.
