Waterstones Says

A decade on from the landmark How To Be a Woman, Caitlin Moran returns with a bitingly brilliant sequel addressing crucial issues of feminism, motherhood and general everyday life.

A decade ago, Caitlin Moran thought she had it all figured out. Her instant bestseller How to Be a Woman was a game-changing take on feminism, the patriarchy, and the general 'hoo-ha' of becoming a woman. Back then, she firmly believed 'the difficult bit' was over, and her forties were going to be a doddle.

If only she had known: when middle age arrives, a whole new bunch of tough questions need answering. Why isn't there such a thing as a 'Mum Bod'? How did sex get boring? What are men really thinking? Where did all that stuff in the kitchen drawers come from? Can feminists have Botox? Why has wine turned against you? How can you tell the difference between a Teenage Micro-Breakdown, and The Real Thing? Has feminism gone too far? And, as always, WHO'S LOOKING AFTER THE CHILDREN?

Now with ageing parents, teenage daughters, a bigger bum and a To-Do list without end, Caitlin Moran is back with More Than A Woman: a guide to growing older, a manifesto for change, and a celebration of all those middle-aged women who keep the world turning.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I adore, admire and - more - am addicted to Caitin Moran's writing - Nigella Lawson

This book is a hilarious memoir, a passionate polemic, and a moving manifesto on how to be a decent person and try, in the face of countless stresses, to live a full open-hearted, joyous life - Sunday Times

Superbly funny - Guardian

She writes with such heartening VIM and warmth about all the important stuff. More Than A Woman is my FRIEND, untangling a lot of my confusion about doing feminism right - Marian Keyes

Exceptionally brilliant and powerful. Her new book is incredible - I shrieked with laughter throughout and probably cried solidly for the last 30 pages. She is simply one of the most significant people of her generation. Her writing has helped so many. - Marina Hyde

I wish I'd read Caitlin Moran's More Than A Woman 40 years ago. But like with the tree-planting, the second best time is now. You just have to. - Hugh Laurie

One of very few who can write inspirationally without becoming platitudinous. Her prose is so lucid and personal and funny you don't even notice that what you're reading is a manifesto. - David Baddiel

Warning - you won't sleep until you've inhaled every single word ... BUY IT IMMEDIATELY - Claudia Winkleman

More Than a Woman examines middle age, motherhood, sex and, of course, feminism all with Moran's signature wit. - Evening Standard

Funny, life-affirming and wise. - The Observer

“Hilarious from the start”

I have forgiven the mis-spelling of Timothee Chalamet’s name on page 25 (Timothy), because this book is fantastically funny and put a smile on my face the moment I started reading it. Caitlin just has a way of writing... More
