Summary

A brand-new collection of Caitlin's award-winning Times columns plus three major new pieces exclusive to this book - one of which is Caitlin's Moranifesto for a better world. As with Moranthology, Caitlin introduces every piece and weaves her writing together into a brilliant, seamless book. And, similarly to her last collection, Moranifesto is a characteristically fun and witty look at the news, celebrity culture and society.
But it is also - as we all are these days - much more socially engaged, with strong and important pieces on poverty, the media and class. And, of course, she is never afraid to address the big issues, such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats. Who else but Caitlin Moran - a true Renaissance woman - could deal with topics as pressing and diverse as gaying up the Olympics, affordable housing, 1980s swearing, boarding schools and why the Internet is like a drunken toddler?
From austerity and Hillary Clinton to cystitis and Ant & Dec, Caitlin's manifesto is an engaging and mischievous rallying call for our times.

Brilliant and Funny as always

Another belter from Moran, takes you through a range of emotions with some really thought provoking ideas. Laugh out loud funny in parts and brilliantly written.

I want to immerse myself in Moran's brilliant bubble!

The only criticism I have is that Moran didn't read this herself! The book is excellent, intelligent and intuitive. Her Moranifesto proposes genuinely excellent ideas for how we can improve this country as well as ourselves as individuals. I recommend this book to everyone - man, woman, child, Eskimo, Korean, Swedish, French, Iranian, et al!

Great indoctrination for old fans and new

It took me an age to finish this, but actually I really enjoyed Caitlin's latest musings on life and love, if not the universe. I should qualify that since I don't read her newspaper columns, this was all new material for me, and so Moranisfesto had a freshness and originality that would be lacking if you have read most of these pieces previously. I'm a huge fan of Caitlin's generally - her humour and politics and the wicked blend thereof - and would personally nominate her for prime minister if I were British. This is an excellent indoctrination in Moran-ism. The only aspect of the book I can't say I appreciated is her commentary on television - of no interest or relevance to someone not acquainted with pretty much anything on TV and British TV in particular. Still, if you're in my boat, skip those bits and savour the rest with your shoes kicked off and a lovely glass of chardonnay.

absolutely divine

I'm rereading it as soon as I've finished, right now! I never wanted this book to end.
the most thought provoking, funny, wise and skillful writer I have come across in years.
the reader is really good too! I was worried that after listening to How To Be A Woman read by Caitlin Moran herself, I'd be ruined for anyone else reading her work. however this reader conveyed her essence really well.
all in all, I'm grateful to be alive in the same century as this author.
