Caitlin Moran puts a new face on feminism, cutting to the heart of women's issues today with her irreverent, transcendent, and hilarious How to Be a Woman. Half memoir, half polemic, and entirely necessary, (Elle UK), Moran's debut was an instant runaway bestseller in England as well as an Amazon UK Top Ten book of the year; still riding high on bestseller lists months after publication, it is a bona fide cultural phenomenon. Now poised to take American womanhood by storm, here is a book that Vanity Fair calls the U.K. version of Tina Fey's Bossypants .You will laugh out loud, wince, and in my case feel proud to be the same gender as the author.
