In an email exclusive to her “Mailing List Tribe”, journalist, author and broadcaster, Caitlin Moran revealed the exciting news of her new, upcoming book. This latest book from the bestselling author of How to Be a Woman will be published in September this year and is titled More Than a Woman.
“Back when I finished writing How to Be a Woman a decade ago, I truly thought I had it all figured out. I thought I had vanquished the patriarchy in my mind, and nailed the general ‘hoo-ha’ of becoming a woman,” wrote Moran in her email newsletter, “I firmly believed ‘the difficult bit’ was over, and my forties were going to be a doddle. If only I’d known: when middle age arrives, a whole new bunch of tough questions need answering. Why isn’t there such a thing as a ‘Mum Bod’? How did sex get boring? What are men really thinking? Can feminists have Botox? Why has wine turned against me? How can you tell the difference between a Teenage Micro-Breakdown, and The Real Thing? Has feminism gone too far? Where did all that stuff in the kitchen drawers come from? And, as always, WHO’S LOOKING AFTER THE CHILDREN?”
More Than a Woman publishes almost a decade after the publication of How to Be a Woman in 2011 and Moran explains that in this latest book, she returns to talk to her readers about what happens next.
“So now I’m a middle-aged woman who truly has seen it all, and has an extra grey streak in her hair to prove it, I’m back to talk about what happens next,” writes Moran, “With ageing parents, teenage daughters, a bigger bum and a To-Do list without end, I give you More Than A Woman: a guide to growing older, a manifesto for change, and a celebration of all those middle-aged women who keep the world turning. If nothing else, I truly feel I have investigated the phenomenon of Inexplicably Loud Male Sneezing to a forensic degree. WHY is it so loud? WHY? *starts crying* THEY HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME OLFACTORY SYTEM AS US. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.”
In her email newsletter to her subscribers, Caitlin Moran also revealed that she had another lockdown surprise. The film adaptation of her novel, How to Build a Girl, starring Beanie Feldstein as Johanna Morrigan will be available to stream via Amazon Prime at the end of May.
Caitlin Moran’s More Than a Woman will be published by Ebury Press on 3rd September 2020 and it is available to pre-order now. In the closing words of Caitlin Moran, “I truly hope you love it.”
