Britain's most talented, award-winning and bestselling columnist collected here for the very first time

About the 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 has gone on to be named Columnist of the Year six 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 28 countries, and won the British Book Awards' Book of the Year 2011. Her two volumes of collected journalism, Moranthology and Moranifesto, were Sunday Times bestsellers, and her novel, How to Build a Girl, debuted at Number One, and is currently being adapted as a movie. 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 two children, where she spends her time tweeting either about civil rights issues, or that picture of Bruce Springsteen when he was 23, and has his top off. She would like to be remembered as 'a very sexual humanitarian'.

Reviews

British journalist Moran's (How To Be a Woman) award-winning columns for The Times are available here for an American audience for the first time. In the introduction, she declares her intentions to write "a collection of instances of how brilliant the world often is." To that end, she covers topics that range from her personal history (being homeschooled in a housing project in the industrial city of Wolverhampton, her work interviewing musicians including Keith Richards and Lady Gaga), social issues (benefit reform, the welfare state, the importance of libraries, particularly to poor communities; she describes them as places "where the wealthy's taxes pay for you to become a little more extraordinary"), and cultural matters (Michael Jackson's funeral, her unexpected delight in the role-playing game World of Warcraft, how very, very good Stephen Moffat's Sherlock is). Each essay offers readers a look at the world from the perspective of someone who is sharply intelligent, deeply kind, and extremely funny. Verdict A must read for anyone who enjoys topical humor, personal narrative, or any kind of cracking good story.-Stephanie Klose, Library Journal (c) Copyright 2012.

Hilarious [and] sharply intelligent ... she is one of the most astute social commentators hitting a keyboard today ... guaranteed to brighten up anyone's life * Independent *
As insightful and every bit as funny as her last book, but with broader range * Elle *
She is a brilliant, brilliant writer * Glamour *
Properly funny, naughty and admirably no-nonsense, it's every bit as brilliant as you'd expect * Closer *
I adore, admire and am addicted to Caitlin Moran's writing -- Nigella Lawson
