Journalist Moran brings all of her usual humor and passion to bear in this collection of writing from her column with The Times. Topics range across the vast gamut of Moran’s interests – anything from the death of Prince to the death of common politeness is fair game – but her trademark penchant for politics and all things feminism form a unifying thread throughout the collection. Her casual style belies the thoughtfulness behind each piece, and there’s something here for every reader, and I hope that this is the book to bring her a wider American audience!— From Emily's Picks
From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Woman and Moranthology comes a collection of Caitlin Moran's award-winning London Times columns that takes a clever, hilarious look at celebrities, society, and the wacky world we live in today--including three major new pieces exclusive to this book.
When Caitlin Moran sat down to choose her favorite pieces for her new book, she realized that they all shared a common theme--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...
Introducing every piece and weaving her writing together into a brilliant, seamless narrative--just as she did in Moranthology--Caitlin combines the best of her recent columns with lots of new writing unique to this book as she offers a characteristically fun and witty look at the news, celebrity culture, and society. Featuring strong and important pieces on poverty, the media, and class, Moranifesto also focuses on how socially engaged we've become as a society.
And of course, Caitlin is never afraid to address the big issues, such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats. Who else but Caitlin Moran--a true modern Renaissance woman--could deal with topics as pressing and diverse as the beauty of musicals, affordable housing, Daft Punk, and why the Internet is like a drunken toddler?
Covering everything from Hillary Clinton to UTIs, Caitlin's manifesto is an engaging and mischievous rallying call for our times.
