'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 favourite pieces for her new book she realised that they all seemed to join up. Turns out, it's 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 lots of new writing unique to this book, Caitlin deals with topics as pressing and diverse as 1980s swearing, benefits, boarding schools, and why the internet is like a drunken toddler.



And whilst never afraid to address the big issues of the day--such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats--Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our 21st century society and presents us with her 'Moranifesto' for making the world a better place.

I've thoroughly enjoyed all of Moran's previous books, and this is no exception. Moranifesto brings together previously published essays from Moran's regular column along with some new material, and absolutely every chapter is a gem. I did a lot of laughing out loud, but I also found myself close to tears and enraged, both on the author's behalf and on behalf of various marginalized groups. Moran writes passionately and eloquently about growing up poor/class in England; the utter danceability of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky; parenting and the trauma of miscarriage; her ardent love of David Bowie; the reality of modern sexism; and just about everything in-between.

Very good and most enjoyable ; perceptive comments with wit and humour.Easy to dip into with it being a collection of her columns. If you like our own Michele A*Court, this one should appeal.
