Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“Caitlin Moran is not only hilarious, sharply intelligent and so much more than a ‘shit Dickens or Orwell, but with tits’; she is one of the most astute social commentators hitting a keyboard today.” (Abby O'Reilly, The Independent)

“A brilliant follow-up to How to Be a Woman….If you are a fan of common sense, comic writing and pop culture, buy [Moranthology] immediately.” (Roisin Ingle, The Irish Times)

“[Moran’s] skill as an interviewer lies not in the killer question but in the way she conveys being there and messing it up. She is gleeful and rueful and on the money.” (Claudia FitzHerbert, The Spectator)

Moranthology is a merry ramble on anything and everything. A diffuse collection allows Moran to show off her strengths: a broad range of interests, an almost canine enthusiasm, and a love of the world and its people that radiates from every page. (Malena Watrous, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review)

“In Moranthology, a collection of [Moran’s] greatest hits, she has full rein to unleash a barrage of scorchingly funny and uncensored opinions on the rest of the known universe.” (Elissa Schappell, Vanity Fair Best Books of the Year)

“Fans of Ms. Moran will be especially pleased that all the pith and wit about How to Be a Woman remain on display in Moranthology.” (Rachel Hurn, Wall Street Journal)

“The truth will set you free, some say. In Moran’s case, it will make you guffaw… This witty and wise collection is sure to expand Moran’s fan base on this side of the pond.” (Allison Block, Booklist)

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

Format: Taschenbuch
Die britische Journalistin, Autorin und Feministin Caitlin Moran veröffentlicht regelmäßig in UK-Tageszeitungen Kolumnen über wirklich alles und jeden - die besten hat sie hier kommentierend zusammengestellt.
"Moranthology" ist sehr abwechslungsreich, mal geht es um ernste Themen wie die Wichtigkeit der Aufrechterhaltung von staatlicher Armenhilfe, dann jedoch findet man auch seitenlange Kommentare über britische Popkultur(etwa Rezensionen der BBC-Serien "Sherlock" und "Downtown Abbey"), oder intime und sehr amüsante Gespräche mit ihrem Ehemann.
Desweiteren gibt es zahlreiche Interviews und Begegnungen mit Prominenten, wie etwa Keith Richards oder Lady GaGa (letzteres beinhaltet für Leute, die "How to be a Woman" gelesen haben, leider nichts Neues). Allein wer diese Berühmtheiten mal aus einer anderen Perspektive sehen will, sollte hier mal reinlesen.
Moran ist in all ihren Ergüssen brutal ehrlich, oft ist ihr Humor fragwürdig, aber ihr bemerkenswerter Schreibstil und ihre originelle Persönlichkeit machen "Moranthology" ganz klar zu einem lohnenswerten Leseerlebnis.
Nur so mancher Beitrag ist für einen deutschen Leser, der vielleicht nicht allzu sehr mit der britischen Unterhaltungsindustrie vertraut ist, doch arg ausschweifend und langwierig.

Caitlin Moran ist eine Autorin, die englischen, trockenen Humor gekonnt mit irischer Herzlichkeit und viel Selbstironie verbindet. Mal witzig, mal scharfsinnig, widmet sie sich Themen des alltäglichen Lebens ebenso wie Politik und Klatsch - immer unterhaltsam und stets wortgewandt. Dabei läst die Autorin etwas mit einfließen, an dem es in der deutschen Literatur leider fast gänzlich fehlt: witzigen, selbstironischen Feminismus. Außerdem beinhaltet dieses Buch das wohl lustigste und coolste Keith Richards Interview, das ich je gelesen habe. Aber auch sonst macht es einfach sehr viel Spaß, dieses Buch zu lesen.

HASH(0x9464a374) von 5 Sternen didn't want it to end 14. Oktober 2012
Von Kathryn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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(0x93a6ddb0) von 5 Sternen One way to get behind The Times' paywall .. 6. November 2012
Von blacktaffeta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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(0x937d7f84) von 5 Sternen Almost perfectly smart, funny, and engaging 24. März 2013
Von Ready Mommy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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(0x937e2144) von 5 Sternen Quick and Funny 25. April 2013
Von Irishgal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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.
