9780091940898: Moranthology

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 which are usually the province of learned professors, or hot-shot wonks - and not a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar, and got it stoned. These other subjects include: Caffeine; Ghostbusters; Being Poor; Twitter; Caravans; Obama; Wales; Marijuana Addiction; Paul McCartney; The Welfare State; Sherlock; David Cameron Looking Like Ham; Amy Winehouse; Elizabeth Taylor's Eyes; Michael Jackson's Funeral; 'The Big Society'; Big Hair; Nutter-letters; Failed Nicknames; Wolverhampton'; Squirrels' Testicles; Sexy Tax; Binge-drinking; Chivalry; Rihanna's Cardigan; Boris Johnson - Albino Shag-hound; Party Bags; Hot People; Transsexuals; The Gay Moon Landings; and My Own, Untimely Death.

About the Author:

CAITLIN MORAN was brought up on a council estate in Wolverhampton, where she was home-educated, wore a poncho, and had boys throw stones at her whilst calling her 'a bummer'. Understandably keen to forge a career and move on, Caitlin won the Observer's Young Reporter of the Year competition at 15, and published her first novel, The Chronicles of Narmo, in the same year. She briefly presented Channel 4's late-night music show Naked City, aged 17, and then became a columnist at The Times aged 18 - eventually ending up writing three award-winning columns a week for the paper. In 2011 Caitlin wrote the multi-award-winning bestseller How To Be A Woman which was published in 16 countries and won the British Book Awards Book of the Year. Caitlin lives on Twitter with her husband and two children, and spends an hour a week going 'But it's pronounced "Catlin". I know! I know! The spelling unquestionably suggests otherwise! I am an idiot!'

From Booklist:

The truth will set you free, some say. In Moran’s case, it will make you guffaw. The British columnist is nothing if not bracingly honest, from her commentaries on Keith Richards (everything he says is “in the cadence of Pirate”) to her own sartorial insecurities (“I need to know if I look like some manner of ‘Lady Ace Ventura—Pet Detective’”). In this follow-up to How to Be a Woman (2012), Moran once again opines on American and British pop culture, touting Ghostbusters as the greatest film of all time (against which Star Wars doesn’t stand a chance) and BBC smash hit Sherlock as the television program that puts all others to shame. (It doesn’t hurt that its star, Benedict Cumberbatch, is a total hunk.) Moran has some serious moments, too, including a paean to the power of local libraries—“cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination.” This witty and wise collection is sure to expand Moran’s fan base on this side of the pond. --Allison Block
