Her first book, a collection of essays entitled Metropolitan Life, became a bestseller, as did her second, Social Studies.

Blues for an Alabama sky at The Taper and An Evening with Fran Lebowitz at The Broad Stage

The revival of Pearl Cleage’s rich and beautiful work Blues for an Alabama Sky offers a tale steeped in the hopes, dreams, and heartaches of struggling artists and activists during the Harlem Renaissance during the 1930s Depression era.

I’ll go with that then.”
