Social Studies - Fran Lebowitz Rather dated humorous essays about the urban life of a writer. I often disagree with Lebowitz, but she is so funny, I don't mind. She actually reminds me of a friend I went to high school with who is just as misanthropic and opinionated. I first read these essays in high school, but recently perused them again since Scorsese has done a documentary about her.
