Treasures are supposed to be rare, and the scarcity of Liebowitz' "Social Studies" makes it prized and hoardable. OK, the stereotypes are there. If nothing else, Liebowitz and Robert Burns had the same idea - to see ourselves as others see us - but Liebowitz makes us laugh. As she wrote - sarcasm is what New Yorkers have in place of Jacuzzis. My dog-eared copy of "Studies" is one of the treasured tomes in my reading library. I always know where it is.

I've lost count of the number of times I've read Social Studies. I'm sure I must have whole paragraphs memorized by now. Fran Lebowitz's gift with words is extraordinary, and the book is laugh-out-loud funny. I bought this copy as a birthday present; I was dismayed to see that it is out of print.

This is a great book from Fran Lebowitz. Her humor and logic is absolutely amazing. I try to read everything she writes.
