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

Possibly the only drawback about 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 which are usually the province of learned professors, or hot-shot wonks - and not a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar, and got it stoned. These other subjects include: Caffeine Ghostbusters Being Poor Twitter Caravans Obama Wales Marijuana Addiction Paul McCartney The Welfare State Sherlock David Cameron Looking Like Ham Amy Winehouse Elizabeth Taylor's Eyes Michael Jackson's Funeral 'The Big Society' Big Hair Nutter-letters Failed Nicknames Wolverhampton Squirrels' Testicles Sexy Tax Binge-drinking Chivalry Rihanna's Cardigan Boris Johnson - Albino Shag-hound Party Bags Hot People Transsexuals The Gay Moon Landings My Own, Untimely Death

Autorentext
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'.
