Fran Lebowitz

About

Arriving in New York over 50 years ago, Fran Lebowitz made her name as a columnist on Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, before publishing two bestselling volumes of essays, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, which are collected in The Fran Lebowitz Reader.

She is one of America’s most insightful social commentators, a sought-after public speaker, style icon, wit and flaneur. Fran Lebowitz has collaborated with Martin Scorsese on two documentaries: the film Public Speaking in 2010, and the limited series, Pretend It’s a City in 2021

Lebowitz lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.
