Fran Lebowitz

When Fran Lebowitz made her way to Manhattan in the late 1960s, she subsidised her writing by driving a cab. She landed a job with Andy Warhol’s Interview and became a national sensation through a best-selling book of sardonic essays entitled Metropolitan Life. Currently a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, Lebowitz is widely known for her appearances on late-night talk shows. Martin Scorsese made a documentary about her life entitled Public Speaking (2010).
