Revue de presse

"As insightful and every bit as funny as her last book, but with broader range" (Elle)

"She is a brilliant, brilliant writer" (Glamour)

"Properly funny, naughty and admirably no-nonsense, it’s every bit as brilliant as you’d expect" (Closer)

"I adore, admire and am addicted to Caitlin Moran's writing" (Nigella Lawson)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Possibly the only drawback about the bestselling How To Be A Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman.

In MORANTHOLOGY Caitlin 'gets quite chatty’ about many subjects, including cultural, social and political issues which are usually left to hot-shot wonks and not a woman who sometimes keeps a falafel in her handbag. These other subjects include...

Caffeine | Ghostbusters | Being Poor | Twitter | Caravans | Obama | Wales | Paul McCartney | The Welfare State | Sherlock | David Cameron Looking Like Ham | Amy Winehouse | ‘The Big Society’ | Big Hair | Nutter-letters | Michael Jackson's funeral | Failed Nicknames | Wolverhampton | Squirrels’ Testicles | Sexy Tax | Binge-drinking | Chivalry | Rihanna’s Cardigan | Party Bags | Hot People| Transsexuals | The Gay Moon Landings

HASH(0x9c6f2cbc) étoiles sur 5 didn't want it to end 14 octobre 2012
Par Kathryn - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is laugh-out-loud-sitting-on-the-couch-on-your-own funny. It is a collection of her favourite newspaper columns that she written over the years, about British TV shows, Celebrities, Politics or everyday married life, with short introductions giving the context or some background information. The Gaga interview is a stand-out, but my favourites were the late-night conversations with her husband. Caitlin Moran is hilarious and an extremely talented writer.

I really want to be best friends with Caitlin... I've been raving about "How to be a Woman" for the past year, and this was just as good again.

HASH(0x9c1cdf54) étoiles sur 5 One way to get behind The Times' paywall .. 6 novembre 2012
Par blacktaffeta - Publié sur
Format: Broché
First the good news. Caitlin Moran's journalism has for some time been largely hidden from view unless you buy The Times. Now here are many of her articles available to us all - really, a lot of them - it's a big fat book. And if you like her writing, you'll like this. She is genuinely funny and seldom dull.

I bought How To Be a Woman, but I didn't buy this. I borrowed it from the library. For two reasons.

1. She is, theoretically at least, passionately pro-libraries so I imagine she should be all in favour of that.
2. I read somewhere that every time she sees someone with a copy of her book, she says "Kerching" under her breath. And that's not very nice, is it?

So this brings me to the bad news. Underneath all the brilliance and the determination to entertain, I sense something rather like contempt for her readership, a grasping attitude to money, and an ego the size of a planet. When I saw her speak last year she was hung over. All those people had paid to see her and she couldn't stay sober the night before. There's something uncomfortable about the way she writes about her children - about her attitude to her husband - about her massive self-belief (please don't write about world economics again, Caitlin. You have no understanding of economics. It makes you look stupid as well as arrogant and I'm sure you don't want that).

Also, the later articles are not as well-written as the earlier ones. Churning out all those words every week seems to be taking its toll and it's clear she's ready to move on from journalism.

Therefore, three stars. Read the book fast, revel in her facility with language, enjoy her interviews with the cream of the entertainment world. Just don't look too deep beneath the surface, because you might not like what you find.

HASH(0x9bf2742c) étoiles sur 5 A mildly entertaining anthology! 20 janvier 2013
Par BLehner - Publié sur
Format: Relié
After her tremendously successful book How To Be a Woman, Caitlin Moran is back with a collection of columns she's written for The Times Magazine in her appropriately named anthology Moranthology.
Wading through a mishmash of different topics, mostly in the realms of popular culture, she also broaches more serious topics, such as living on benefits, or, my personal favorites, allows up-close-and-personal insights into her life, including how she got her trademark grey hair strand. Topics may vary, some columns being more poignant than others, ranging from grave to funny, and always with a tendency of bordering on the vulgar, Moran's witty and eloquent writing style is definitely the red thread in this book.
Little did I know this is a collection of older work and the only new additions are the short introductions to each column. Of course this presented the perfect opportunity to simply get to know her work better. Unfortunately though this book shares the fate of many anthologies - the likelihood that you will end up loving a handful of articles while the rest is just average padding between the covers, a padding that, in my case, consisted of an abundance of pieces about British TV series.
Seeing how my expectations were high after her previous book, this collection was admittedly a bit of a let-down for me. However, this is simply a matter of personal preferences and should not discourage anyone giving this book a try.
In short: A mildly entertaining anthology in typical Moran-style!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Random House. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

HASH(0x9c470570) étoiles sur 5 Almost perfectly smart, funny, and engaging 24 mars 2013
Par Ready Mommy - Publié sur
Format: Broché
For those of us who are new to the phenomenon that is Caitlin Moran, this compilation of columns proves that she is an unparalleled artist, painting with a brush of words and a palette of intelligence, hilarity, conscience, introspection, and interpersonality. In other words, her writing is wicked smart, uber perceptive, totally principled, and super freaking funny.

Only two problems separate "Moranthology" from "How To Be a Woman," an irrefutably five-star book: (1) the nature of an anthology and (2) haste. First, reading this book is a bit like watching a full season of "West Wing" in a week or multiple episodes of "30 Rock" in a single sitting - one is simultaneously overwhelmed by the brilliance and unable to fully appreciate it. If I had it to do again (without the library due date bearing down on me), I'd read one piece a day. As it was, I had trouble switching gears between columns and ended with an impression of slight unevenness in quality. Second, the damned typos. Clearly in a rush to capitalize on the success of "How To Be a Woman" in the States, Moran's publisher appears to have either hired a high school student to re-type the columns and run straight to the printer, or forgotten to insert a caveat explaining that original errors were maintained for some strange sense of journalistic integrity (and I'm not an idiot who doesn't recognize British spelling variations; I'm just a whack job who's pet-peeved by the lack of thorough editing).

If I could give a book four and a half stars, I would. Blame "How To Be a Woman" for my refusal to call "Moranthology" perfection, then read both books.

HASH(0x9bf2ba68) étoiles sur 5 Quick and Funny 25 avril 2013
Par Irishgal - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Caitlin Moran is an English funnywoman who, thanks to her first book, "How to Be a Woman", is now starting to make a name here in the United States. In "Moranthology", she presents a collection of past essays about everything from feminism to the BBC series "Sherlock" to the Royal Wedding. In it, she details her writing career, her relationship with her husband, and the various celebrities she's had the chance to interview (including Lady Gaga and Paul McCartney).

Moran is a unique blend of irreverence and intelligence, and, in some cases, she manages to type what we're all thinking. Though I fundamentally differ from her beliefs certain matters, I can admit that she makes things funny. Some chapters are a bit strained (her chapter on being poor and having the television taken away isn't necessarily in the best taste, even if it is true) but others are downright hilarious. In fact, her re-telling of the Royal Wedding is worth the entire book.

Along with her columns, Moran introduces most essays with a brief history of the situation or how it relates to the previous section. It's chatty and informal, and, in some cases, much funnier than the essay itself. If you're looking for the next Mindy Kaling, this isn't quite in the same vein, though fans of the former will probably like this one. As for me, it was a nice, quick read, and I wouldn't rule out reading more of Moran in the future.
