Publisher Comments:

The follow-up to Caitlin Moran's breakout hit, How to Be a Woman — a hilarious collection of award-winning columns, available to American readers for the first time ever.

Possibly the only drawback to the bestselling How to Be a Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman. Moranthology is proof that Caitlin can actually be "quite chatty" about many other things, including cultural, social, and political issues that are usually the province of learned professors or hot-shot wonks — and not of a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar and got it stoned. Caitlin ruminates on — and sometimes interviews — subjects as varied as caffeine, Keith Richards, Ghostbusters, Twitter, transsexuals, the welfare state, the royal wedding, Lady Gaga, and her own mortality, to name just a few. With her unique voice, Caitlin brings insight and humor to everything she writes.

Review:

“Caitlin Moran is not only hilarious, sharply intelligent and so much more than a ‘shit Dickens or Orwell, but with tits'; she is one of the most astute social commentators hitting a keyboard today.” Abby O'Reilly, The Independent

Review:

“A brilliant follow-up to How to Be a Woman….If you are a fan of common sense, comic writing and pop culture, buy [Moranthology] immediately.” Roisin Ingle, The Irish Times

Review:

“[Moran's] skill as an interviewer lies not in the killer question but in the way she conveys being there and messing it up. She is gleeful and rueful and on the money.” Claudia FitzHerbert, The Spectator

Review:

Moranthology is a merry ramble on anything and everything. A diffuse collection allows Moran to show off her strengths: a broad range of interests, an almost canine enthusiasm, and a love of the world and its people that radiates from every page." Malena Watrous, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

Review:

“In Moranthology, a collection of [Morans] greatest hits, she has full rein to unleash a barrage of scorchingly funny and uncensored opinions on the rest of the known universe.” Elissa Schappell, Vanity Fair Best Books of the Year

Review:

“Fans of Ms. Moran will be especially pleased that all the pith and wit about How to Be a Woman remain on display in Moranthology.” Rachel Hurn, Wall Street Journal

Review:

“The truth will set you free, some say. In Moran's case, it will make you guffaw….This witty and wise collection is sure to expand Moran's fan base on this side of the pond.” Allison Block, Booklist

Why do I love her so much? Quite simply because she's hilarious. She makes excellent observations, which make you laugh, and at the same time consider often serious topics from a new light. You learn something, you feel entertained. What's not to love?
