What Ever Happened To Fran Lebowitz?

What Ever Happened To Fran Lebowitz?
BY FRANCESCA PHILLIPPY
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Acclaimed American Author Fran Lebowitz, also known as the heir of Dorothy Parker, seemed to disappear after 1995. This outspoken satirist may have been quieter than usual, but her commentary has never been far.

Finally, after ten years of writer’s block, Lebowitz has recently begun working on her novel, Exterior Signs of Wealth. It is unknown when this will be released.

Frances Ann “Fran” Lebowitz, born in Morristown, N.J., is known for her bestselling collection of comedic essays called Metropolitan Life, written in 1978. In 1981 she wrote a similar book of essays, Social Studies. Both collections were re-released in The Fran Lebowitz Reader in 1994, according to Barclayagency.com.

She has also written a children’s book, Mr. Chas and Lisa Sue Meet the Pandas, in 1994 and is currently working on two separate projects. Her next book, Progress, is expected to come out in 2015.

A documentary film about Fran Lebowitz, Public Speaking, directed by Martin Scorsese, premiered on HBO in November 2010.
