More Than a Woman

More Than a Woman

by Caitlin Moran

Overview

Building on the runaway international success of How To Be A Woman, Caitlin Moran's latest adds a 10-years-later perspective to the debate about what constitutes modern womanhood. A Sunday Times columnist from age 18, Moran's take on the world around her showcases her trademark blend of funny, sharp, and moving writing.

Moran comes from a very large family. When her own teenage brother came to stay during their parent's late-life divorce, everything changed. The book flits from light-hearted musings on parental sex to traversing serious teenage trauma, via bracing views on Botox, childcare, and crockery.

Moran is unusually candid, fiercely self-aware, and always amusing, espousing a humanistic, feminist dimension that manages to blend humor and empathy. Above all, Moran celebrates community, collaboration, and caring — with a punchline never far away.
