"Hilarious [and] sharply intelligent ... she is one of the most astute social commentators hitting a keyboard today ... guaranteed to brighten up anyone's life" Independent "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
CAITLIN MORAN was brought up on a council estate in Wolverhampton, where she was home-educated, wore a poncho, and had boys throw stones at her whilst calling her 'a bummer'. Understandably keen to forge a career and move on, Caitlin won the Observer's Young Reporter of the Year competition at 15, and published her first novel, The Chronicles of Narmo, in the same year. She briefly presented Channel 4's late-night music show Naked City, aged 17, and then became a columnist at The Times aged 18 - eventually ending up writing three award-winning columns a week for the paper. In 2011 Caitlin wrote the multi-award-winning bestseller How To Be A Woman which was published in 16 countries and won the British Book Awards Book of the Year. Caitlin lives on Twitter with her husband and two children, and spends an hour a week going 'But it's pronounced "Catlin". I know! I know! The spelling unquestionably suggests otherwise! I am an idiot!'
