- In stock online
I've lived through ten iOS upgrades on my Mac - and that's just something I use to muck about on Twitter. Surely capitalism is due an upgrade or two?
When Caitlin Moran sat down to choose her favourite pieces for her new book she realised that they all seemed to join up. Turns out, it's the same old problems and the same old ass-hats. Then she thought of the word 'Moranifesto', and she knew what she had to do...
This is Caitlin's engaging and amusing rallying call for our times. Combining the best of her recent columns with lots of new writing unique to this book, Caitlin deals with topics as pressing and diverse as 1980s swearing, benefits, boarding schools, and why the internet is like a drunken toddler.
And whilst never afraid to address the big issues of the day - such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats - Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our 21st century society and presents us with her 'Moranifesto' for making the world a better place. The polite revolution starts here! Please.
‘To be clear, you won’t find dry diatribes on the machinations of Westminster here – not least because Moran isn’t capable of writing dryly about anything… Here, as with How To Be a Woman, the joy of Moran’s writing lies in how she combines thoughtfulness and intelligence with proper belly laughs.’ – The Independent
Caitlin Moran’s literary career started prodigiously early, winning The Observer’s Young Reporter of the Year at the age of 15 and later became a journalist and broadcaster, writing first for Melody Maker and later for The Times. Her book, How to Be a Woman became an instant bestseller, with one critic commenting: ‘The triumph of How To Be A Woman is that it adds to women's confidence. It reminds us that sexism, and all that is associated with it, is not only repressive, it is tedious and stupid. It is boring’. Since then Moran has published two collections of her journalism, Moranthology and Moranifesto and the novel How to Build a Girl.
