Description

"Caitlin Moran is the profane, witty and wonky best friend I wish I had. She's the feminist rock star we need right now."
--Ayelet Waldman, author of Bad Mother

"Caitlin Moran is so fabulous, so funny, so freshly feminist. I don't want to be like her--I want to be her."
--Peggy Orenstein, author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter

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."
