“I’ve lived through ten iOS upgrades on my Mac—and that’s just something I use to muck about on Twitter. Surely capitalism is due an upgrade or two?”
When Caitlin Moran sat down to choose her favorite pieces for her new book, she realized that they all shared a common theme—the same old problems and the same old ass-hats. Then she thought of the word “Moranifesto,” and she knew what she had to do. . . .
This is Caitlin’s engaging and amusing rallying call for our times. Combining the best of her recent columns with new writing exclusive to this book, she deals with topics as pressing and diverse as the beauty of musicals, affordable housing, Daft Punk, and why the Internet is like a drunken toddler.
While never afraid to address the big issues of the day—such as Benedict Cumberbatch and hangovers—Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our twenty-first-century society and presents us with her “Moranifesto” for making the world a better place.
The polite revolution starts here! Please.


“If you dug How to Be a Woman; trust Lena Dunham’s recommendations on literature; are intrigued by chapters titled, variously, ‘David Bowie—England’s Beautiful Boys,’ ‘BACONI’ and ‘The Exact Amount of Famous I Am: 35 Percent,’ Caitlin Moran’s latest, Moranifesto is for you”
“No one tackles issues as big as income inequality and global warming or as small as bang trims and Benedict Cumberbatch’s ass quite like the wickedly funny Caitlin Moran.”
“Author Caitlin Moran has taught us How to Be a Woman and How to Build a Girl, but with her latest collection of essays, she’s eyeing the bigger picture and outlining her personal manifesto… with the signature blend of earnestness and irreverent wit that have made Moran a bestselling writer.”
“If you haven’t heard of Caitlin Moran, I’m afraid you deserve to be publicly shamed.... [She’s] a hilarious, insightful feminist intellectual who writes about politics with the same clarity and ease as she does Benedict Cumberbatch.... This is a book that made me miss my subway stop in both directions.”
“Moran has won audiences over with her sharp wit and penetrating insights about modern-day sexism…. It is difficult, and rare, to be both political and funny, critical yet inviting, but Moran handles this tension skillfully.”
“Witty and intelligent, honest and silly, a shrewd combination of culture, politics and feminism-a conversation worth joining.... Moranifesto exposes the many facets of this complex, wickedly smart woman. Missing it would definitely be a crime.”
“Humorous and/or serious essays that run through the gauntlet that comprises life.... [Moran’s] observations on somber topics are the highlights, giving readers a better sense of the compassionate, intelligent woman behind the prose.”
“Moran’s endless sense of humor, enthusiasm for punching upward, and liberal use of the word ‘you’ makes reading the collection like hanging out with a loud and chatty friend.”
“Exuberant....Moran’s wise, bracing observations about politics, pop culture, feminism, and nearly everything else are no-holds-barred, and made easy and fun to digest by her crackling humor.”
“The joy of Moran’s writing lies in how she combines thoughtfulness and intelligence with proper belly laughs.... It’s this clarity about how the world can be improved, how we can all be better at life, that lies at the heart of Moran’s writing. She may be funny, but she’s also right.”
“Having conquered feminism, Caitlin Moran is ready to solve the problems of the world…. We’re in.”
“Brilliant…. If you like Caitlin Moran you will love how Moranifesto… feels as though she has plonked herself down next to you in the pub and is knocking back gin while folding forth.”
“[Moran] describes the book as ‘detailing how I would solve the problems of the Earth.’ You wouldn’t bet against her.”
“When she writes on politics Moran is predictably brilliant… full of great ideas…. Reading Moranifesto I thought how much I’d like to live in the world Moran is arguing for — a kinder, fairer, more equal place.”
“In Moranthology, a collection of [Moran’s] greatest hits, she has full rein to unleash a barrage of scorchingly funny and uncensored opinions on the rest of the known universe.”
“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.”
“It is bracing in this season of losing [Nora] Ephron to discover a younger feminist writer who scrimmages with the patriarchy and drop kicks zingers with comic flair….A must-read for anyone curious to find out just how very funny a self-proclaimed ‘strident feminist’ can be.”
“Vivid and full of truths…. There’s a point in midlife, when you’re already built, as it were, when the average coming-of-age story starts to feel completely uninteresting. But Moran is so lively, dazzlingly insightful and fun that “How to Build a Girl” transcends any age restrictions.”
“Wonderfully wise and flat-out hilarious.”
“Very funny.... Moran never loses touch with what seemed to me an authentic and believable teenage voice…. The joy of this easy-read novel is not just the scrappy protagonist…. Moran makes strong statements about social inequality and gender throughout.”
“Uproariously funny.”
