The follow-up to Caitlin Moran's breakout hit, How to Be a Woman—A hilarious collection of award-winning columns, available to American readers for the first time ever.
Possibly the only drawback to the bestselling How to Be a Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman. Moranthology is proof that Caitlin can actually be "quite chatty" about many other things, including cultural, social, and political issues that are usually the province of learned professors or hot-shot wonks—and not of a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar and got it stoned. Caitlin ruminates on—and sometimes interviews—subjects as varied as caffeine, Keith Richards, Ghostbusters, Twitter, transsexuals, the welfare state, the royal wedding, Lady Gaga, and her own mortality, to name just a few. With her unique voice, Caitlin brings insight and humor to everything she writes.
Caitlin Moran was named the Columnist of the Year by the British Press Awards in 2010, and Critic and Interviewer of the Year in 2011 for her work at the Times of London. You can follow Caitlin on Twitter @caitlinmoran.
“Caitlin Moran is not only hilarious, sharply intelligent and so much more than a ‘shit Dickens or Orwell, but with tits’; she is one of the most astute social commentators hitting a keyboard today.”
-Abby O'Reilly, The Independent
“A brilliant follow-up to How to Be a Woman….If you are a fan of common sense, comic writing and pop culture, buy [Moranthology] immediately.”
-Roisin Ingle, The Irish Times
“[Moran’s] skill as an interviewer lies not in the killer question but in the way she conveys being there and messing it up. She is gleeful and rueful and on the money.”
-Claudia FitzHerbert, The Spectator
