Fran Lebowitz Will Never Read This Interview
by Rachel Tashjian, The Cut

 
Fran is very good at speaking. She is constantly aghast at the absurdity of modern life — of people using their phones, posing for photographs, politics, feminism, social media, ugly chairs — and yet once she makes her demands known, she gamely poses for the photographs, answers any question you ask her, and talks your ear off, delivering witticisms with the grace of a compliment. It’s almost like she thinks of her talent as a speaker as an expression of etiquette.
