A new way of looking at feminism from one of our funniest writers

Caitlin Moran had literally no friends in 1990, and so had plenty of time to write her first novel, The Chronicles of Narmo, at the age of fifteen. At sixteen she joined music weekly, Melody Maker, and at eighteen briefly presented the pop show 'Naked City' on Channel 4. Following this precocious start she then put in eighteen solid years as a columnist on The Times - both as a TV critic and also in the most-read part of the paper, the satirical celebrity column 'Celebrity Watch' - winning the British Press Awards' Columnist of The Year award in 2010 and Critic and Interviewer of the Year in 2011. The eldest of eight children, home-educated in a council house in Wolverhampton, Caitlin read lots of books about feminism - mainly in an attempt to be able to prove to her brother, Eddie, that she was scientifically better than him. Caitlin isn't really her name. She was christened 'Catherine'. But she saw 'Caitlin' in a Jilly Cooper novel when she was 13 and thought it looked exciting. That's why she pronounces it incorrectly: 'Catlin'. It causes trouble for everyone.

Reviews

Speaking on everything even remotely related to being a woman in today's society, the hilarious Caitlin Moran offers plenty of insight into her life and times in this book aimed at enlightening women (and any brave men). Relating personal tales from her years as a youth, teenager, and finally as wife, mother, and professional writer, Moran narrates in an off-the-cuff tone that is at once down-to-earth and inviting. Her performance is reminiscent of an old friend offering solid advice without ever being preachy or didactic. Moran's stories are entertaining, and her narration demonstrates an inherent skill at performance. While some men won't understand some of her more subtle references to womanhood, they will find it hard to not chuckle at Moran's outlook on life. A Harper Perennial paperback. (Sept.)

"Moran's writing sparkles with wit and warmth. Like the confidences of your smartest friend" -- Simon Pegg "I adore, admire and - more - am addicted to Caitin Moran's writing" -- Nigella Lawson "Spectacular! Very, very funny, moving and revealing" -- Jonathan Ross "I have been waiting for this book my whole life" -- Claudia Winkleman "Ever since I was eighteen I've wanted to be as cool as Caitlin Moran. Now this book has shown me how. Witty, wise and wonderful, this is an indispensable guide to Ladyhood. I laughed. I cried. I found out what my favourite writer calls her vagina" -- Lauren Laverne
