“If you dug How to Be a Woman; trust Lena Dunham’s recommendations on literature; are intrigued by chapters titled, variously, ‘David Bowie—England’s Beautiful Boys,’ ‘BACONI’ and ‘The Exact Amount of Famous I Am: 35 Percent,’ Caitlin Moran’s latest, Moranifesto is for you” (Elle)
“No one tackles issues as big as income inequality and global warming or as small as bang trims and Benedict Cumberbatch’s ass quite like the wickedly funny Caitlin Moran.” (Cosmopolitan)
“Author Caitlin Moran has taught us How to Be a Woman and How to Build a Girl, but with her latest collection of essays, she’s eyeing the bigger picture and outlining her personal manifesto… with the signature blend of earnestness and irreverent wit that have made Moran a bestselling writer.” (Bridey Heing, Bust)
“If you haven’t heard of Caitlin Moran, I’m afraid you deserve to be publicly shamed.... [She’s] a hilarious, insightful feminist intellectual who writes about politics with the same clarity and ease as she does Benedict Cumberbatch.... This is a book that made me miss my subway stop in both directions.” (Dana Schwartz, Observer)
“Moran has won audiences over with her sharp wit and penetrating insights about modern-day sexism…. It is difficult, and rare, to be both political and funny, critical yet inviting, but Moran handles this tension skillfully.” (Meagan Lacy, Library Journal, starred review)
“Witty and intelligent, honest and silly, a shrewd combination of culture, politics and feminism-a conversation worth joining.... Moranifesto exposes the many facets of this complex, wickedly smart woman. Missing it would definitely be a crime.” (Jen Forbus, Shelf Awareness, starred review)
“Humorous and/or serious essays that run through the gauntlet that comprises life.... [Moran’s] observations on somber topics are the highlights, giving readers a better sense of the compassionate, intelligent woman behind the prose.” (Kirkus)
“Moran’s endless sense of humor, enthusiasm for punching upward, and liberal use of the word ‘you’ makes reading the collection like hanging out with a loud and chatty friend.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Exuberant....Moran’s wise, bracing observations about politics, pop culture, feminism, and nearly everything else are no-holds-barred, and made easy and fun to digest by her crackling humor.” (Booklist)
“The joy of Moran’s writing lies in how she combines thoughtfulness and intelligence with proper belly laughs.... It’s this clarity about how the world can be improved, how we can all be better at life, that lies at the heart of Moran’s writing. She may be funny, but she’s also right.” (Independent (London))
From the Back Cover
“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 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. . . .
This is Caitlin’s engaging and amusing rallying call for our times. Combining the best of her recent columns with new writing exclusive to this book, she deals with topics as pressing and diverse as the beauty of musicals, affordable housing, Daft Punk, and why the Internet is like a drunken toddler.
While never afraid to address the big issues of the day—such as Benedict Cumberbatch and hangovers—Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our twenty-first-century society and presents us with her “Moranifesto” for making the world a better place.
The polite revolution starts here! Please.
