Praise

“A great read.” –Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s Tonight Show

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

“Her humor made me laugh aloud and call friends to read passages to them.” —Newsweek

On SOCIAL STUDIES
“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
