About this product
- Description'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 favourite pieces for her new book she realised that they all seemed to join up. Turns out, it's 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 lots of new writing unique to this book, Caitlin deals with topics as pressing and diverse as 1980s swearing, benefits, boarding schools, and why the internet is like a drunken toddler. And whilst never afraid to address the big issues of the day - such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats - Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our 21st century society and presents us with her 'Moranifesto' for making the world a better place. The polite revolution starts here! Please.
- Author BiographyCaitlin Moran is the eldest of eight children, home-educated on a council estate in Wolverhampton, believing that if she were very good and worked very hard, she might one day evolve into Bill Murray. She published a children's novel, The Chronicles of Narmo, at the age of 16, and became a columnist at The Times at 18. She went on to be named Columnist of the Year five times. At one point she was also Interviewer and Critic of the Year, which is good going for someone who still regularly mistypes 'the' as 'hte'. Her multi-award-winning bestseller How to Be a Woman has been published in 25 countries and won British Book Awards Book of the Year 2011. Her second book, Moranthology, was a Sunday Times bestseller, and her novel How To Build a Girl, debuted at number one. She co-writes the Channel 4 sitcom Raised by Wolves with her sister, Caroline. Caitlin lives on Twitter with her husband and two children, where she spends her time tweeting either about civil rights issues, or that picture of Bruce Springsteen when he was 25, and has his top off. She would like to be remembered as 'a very sexual humanitarian'.
