On METROPOLITAN LIFE
"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
"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 "Unique.... Lebowitz offers vocational guides for aspiring heiresses, popes, empresses; manuals for landlords; guidance to the rich who wish to meet the poor." --Vogue

A collection of beautifully crafted hilarious pieces. Slightly dated but still seems to ring true about modern New York. Written with the same rhythm as Woody Allen joke. Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.

For twenty years now, Lebowitz has been keeping her name in the limelight on the basis of these quaint humor piees. From this molehill of work, she has built a mountain of a career. Too bad there never was much 'there' there. Where's this Bonfire-of-the-Vanities-like epic she says she's been slaving over? Sorry, but she ain't no Ralph Ellison. Oh, and am I the only one who's noticed she could pass as Geoffrey Rush's twin?
