Synopsis

Selected by Emma Watson for her feminist book club `Our Shared Shelf' It's a good time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain... Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should we use Botox? Do men secretly hate us? And why does everyone ask you when you're going to have a baby? Part memoir, part rant, Caitlin answers the questions that every modern woman is asking.

Caitlin Moran is the eldest of eight children,home-educated on a council estate in Wolverhampton, believing that if she werevery 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 of16, and became a columnist at The Timesat 18. She has gone on to be named Columnist of the Year six times. At onepoint, she was also Interviewer andCritic of the Year - which is good going for someone who still regularlymistypes `the' as `hte'. Hermulti-award-winning bestseller How to Bea Woman has been published in 28 countries, and won the British Book Awards'Book of the Year 2011. Her two volumes of collected journalism, Moranthology and Moranifesto, were SundayTimes bestsellers, and her novel, Howto Build a Girl, debuted at Number One, and is currently being adapted as amovie. She co-wrote two series of the Rose d'Or-winning Channel 4 sitcom Raised by Wolves with her sister,Caroline. Caitlin lives on Twitter with her husband and twochildren, where she spends her time tweeting either about civil rights issues, or that picture of Bruce Springsteen when he was 23, and has histop off. She would like to be remembered as `a very sexual humanitarian'.

Customer Reviews

I read How to be a Woman over two days on holiday and found it to be the perfect beach companion. Moran's writing is sharp, acerbic and funny, providing many laughs. One only has to read through the chapter headings to get a sense of the content and tone. Whilst mostly light-hearted, there are some deeper moments and observations to get you thinking (about why you shouldn't wear high heels, for example).

Caitlin Moran's How to be a Woman was a game-changer back in the dark(er?) days of 2011... kicking off a whole new wave of candid, funny, often unflinching feminist memoirs. Overflowing with wit and honesty about being a girl, a teenager and a woman, and the many confusing issues we face: love, sex, high heels, waxing, childbirth, and what to call your bits (The Two Ronnies? Simon and Garfunkel cos one's bigger than the other?!), it's still a laugh-out-loud, enlightening feminist call-to-arms.
