Several years ago, in the San Francisco airport, I somehow found myself in conversation with Fran Lebowitz. She'd been out in California giving some talk. I'd been in Oakland, talking Undercover. It was utterly random, could have never been planned, and I wish I'd been a smarter conversational partner.
Last night, thanks to my husband's fiddling with the TV, I noticed this HBO/Martin Scorsese documentary, "Public Speaking," about Fran Lebowitz's life. It's enormously entertaining and one-hundred-percent compelling. It's smart, it's glorious, it's wit.
