About this product
- DescriptionMen are so last century. They seem to have stopped evolving. The Mad Men world is disappearing and the guys are struggling to figure out the altered parameters of manliness . (Maureen Dowd). Do women get anything from men being obsolete? Do we win by triumphing in work, education, the ecomy, politics and business, while retaining homemaking and child rearing? If that happened then we will be doing everything! Are men obsolete? No! I won't let you be you f*****s! (Caitlin Moran). Are Men Obsolete is an essential and entertaining read for anyone interested in what happens next in the great gender discussion. Maureen Dowd, Caitlin Moran, Camille Paglia and Hanna Roisin debate whether modern man is past his sell-by-date, and, if so, what does that mean for women?
- Author BiographyCaitlin Moran (Author) Caitlin 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'.Camille Paglia (Author) Self described 'dissident feminist', Camille Paglia is a professor of humanities and media studies and at the University of the Arts in Phildelphia.
