Summary

A brand-new collection of Caitlin's award-winning Times columns plus three major new pieces exclusive to this book - one of which is Caitlin's Moranifesto for a better world. As with Moranthology, Caitlin introduces every piece and weaves her writing together into a brilliant, seamless book. And, similarly to her last collection, Moranifesto is a characteristically fun and witty look at the news, celebrity culture and society.

But it is also - as we all are these days - much more socially engaged, with strong and important pieces on poverty, the media and class. And, of course, she is never afraid to address the big issues, such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats. Who else but Caitlin Moran - a true Renaissance woman - could deal with topics as pressing and diverse as gaying up the Olympics, affordable housing, 1980s swearing, boarding schools and why the Internet is like a drunken toddler?

From austerity and Hillary Clinton to cystitis and Ant & Dec, Caitlin's manifesto is an engaging and mischievous rallying call for our times.

I want to immerse myself in Moran's brilliant bubble!

The only criticism I have is that Moran didn't read this herself! The book is excellent, intelligent and intuitive. Her Moranifesto proposes genuinely excellent ideas for how we can improve this country as well as ourselves as individuals. I recommend this book to everyone - man, woman, child, Eskimo, Korean, Swedish, French, Iranian, et al!

Adored this book

I loved this book, made me add everything else by Caitlin Moran to my wish list, this book is funny, even when discussing serious and sometimes terribly sad topics. I just LOVED it and want to hang out with the author in a pub and put the world to rights over a few large gins xxxx

Brilliant.

I loved every minute of this book. Caitlins observations of life and politics through a working class, gritty and feminist attitude made me both thoughtful then howl with laughter. Thank you for the ride

Absolutely Brilliant

I often hear Caitlin Moran described as a feminist which I don't agree with. I'd describe Moran a common-sense-ist which she brilliantly proves in Moranifesto. She raises some thought-provoking questions and ideas and manages to make the listener laugh out loud at the same time. The narration is great too, though I'd have preferred Moran to read the book herself.

I couldn't get enough of it!

Caitlin, you never disappoint! Narration as close to the author's voice as you can hope for.

Funny, forthright and thought-provoking - I thoroughly enjoyed Moranifesto!

Insightful and hilarious

Caitlin Moran reads this book in such an engaging, down to earth and relatable way that you feel as though you are having a chat at a pub with your best mate.
Life-changing political ideas, laugh-out-loud stories and a few very moving pieces work to make this audiobook the best I've read so far! Wholly recommend 😀

Compelling, but a bit sunday supplement at times

The energy and verve is nearly always compelling in Moran's writing, and at its best when she is filled with righteous anger mixed with passion to build a better world. Sometimes this anthology veers towards gossipy colour supplement filler, but rarely for long. Worth persevering with if those bits put you off as thete are lots of gems to be found.

Great indoctrination for old fans and new

It took me an age to finish this, but actually I really enjoyed Caitlin's latest musings on life and love, if not the universe. I should qualify that since I don't read her newspaper columns, this was all new material for me, and so Moranisfesto had a freshness and originality that would be lacking if you have read most of these pieces previously. I'm a huge fan of Caitlin's generally - her humour and politics and the wicked blend thereof - and would personally nominate her for prime minister if I were British. This is an excellent indoctrination in Moran-ism. The only aspect of the book I can't say I appreciated is her commentary on television - of no interest or relevance to someone not acquainted with pretty much anything on TV and British TV in particular. Still, if you're in my boat, skip those bits and savour the rest with your shoes kicked off and a lovely glass of chardonnay.

absolutely divine

I'm rereading it as soon as I've finished, right now! I never wanted this book to end.
the most thought provoking, funny, wise and skillful writer I have come across in years.
the reader is really good too! I was worried that after listening to How To Be A Woman read by Caitlin Moran herself, I'd be ruined for anyone else reading her work. however this reader conveyed her essence really well.
all in all, I'm grateful to be alive in the same century as this author.
