Lisa Kogan



Lisa Kogan is the Writer at Large for O, the Oprah Magazine, which has a circulation of over 2 million readers, as well as the author of a monthly column, Lisa Kogan Tells All, which deals with everything from her life as a single, working mother in New York City to her quest for a decent tomato, a comfortable sofa bed, and a good, solid dental plan. Prior to Oprah, Kogan, whose work has been anthologized in several collections, worked at 7 Days (which folded), Egg (which folded), and Mirabella (which folded)...Needless to say, Miss Winfrey was not aware of any of this when Lisa was hired. She also spent 7 years as the Writer at Large for ELLE magazine where her essays were once described as a cross between George Plimpton and Gidget.

“A rose is not its thorns, a peach is not its fuzz and a human being is not his or her crankiness.”
Lisa Kogan

“...if we have to, we can do anything. We are strong, and when one of us isn't feeling all that invincible, the other will always take the wheel. We are women.”
Lisa Kogan, Someone Will Be with You Shortly: Notes from a Perfectly Imperfect Life

“When I was extremely young and shockingly stupid, I thought you weren't supposed to ever get angry at anybody you cared about (lest you suspect I'm exaggerating the "shockingly stupid" part, I also thought Mount Rushmore was a natural phenomenon). I honestly believed that people who were truly in love would never dream of having a good, old-fashioned, knock-down, drag-out fight. I guess when you're the type of girl who walks around thinking that the wind just sort of sculpted Teddy Roosevelt into the side of a mountain, the concept of a fairy-tale relationship makes total sense.”
