Synopsis:

The follow up to her bestselling breakout hit How to Be a Woman, Moranthology is a hilarious, insightful collection of Moran’s London Times columns that confirms her status as “the UK’s answer to Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and Lena Dunham all rolled into one.” (Marie Claire)

Possibly the only drawback about 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.

Here you’ll find Caitlin ruminating on—and sometimes interviewing—subjects as varied as caffeine, Keith Richards, Ghostbusters, Twitter, the welfare state, the royal wedding, Lady Gaga, and her own mortality, to name just a few. With her “brilliant, original voice” (Publishers Weekly), Caitlin brings insight and humor to everything she writes.
