Nonfiction Short Take: Moranifesto – Caitlin Moran

Best known for the hilarious bestseller How to Be a Woman, The NYT calls Moran’s writing “rowdy and fearless… sloppy, big-hearted and alive in all the right ways.” This new book is a collection of her columns from The Times of London. With trademark wit and optimism she covers everything from feminism to race and class…to Benedict Cumberbatch. Bring it with you to the Woman’s March on Washington this January!

“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.”
Booklist

Moran touches on a wide array of topics, including Daft Punk’s hit song ‘Get Lucky,’ Hillary Clinton, social media, class differences, and abortion. Moran’s endless sense of humor, enthusiasm for punching upward… Readers don’t have to be interested in or knowledgeable about everything she references (such as U.K. politics) to have fun with Moran, but they do need a silly sense of humor.”
Publishers Weekly

“Whether they make me pump my fist and say ‘Yeah,’ or make me angry or sad, Moran’s essays are always thought-provoking and, at their best, inspirational. A feminist with a great sense of humor, Moran writes equally well about social injustice and popular culture. Recommended!”
— Carol Schneck Varner, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI
