I'd rather be the mayor
Few modern writers/commentators manage to excel at urbane wit like Fran Lebowitz. Lyndal introduced me to her writing early in our relationship and I devoured the two books she had published, now available in a single volume.
I've long mourned the lack of any further publication but recently discovered that there's a whole lot of her on youtube.
I'll make excuses to be at the computer for a while.
