Possibly the only drawback about the best-selling How to Be a Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman.
Moranthology is proof that Caitlin can actually be ‘quite chatty’ about many other things, including cultural, social and political issues which are usually the province of learned professors, or hot-shot wonks – and not a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar, and got it stoned.
These other subjects include:
The Welfare State,
David Cameron Looking Like Ham,
Elizabeth Taylor’s Eyes,
Michael Jackson’s Funeral,
’The Big Society’,
Boris Johnson – Albino Shag-hound,
The Gay Moon Landings,
My Own, Untimely Death

No, probably not, unless they told me they enjoyed one of her articles.

I felt like Moran was trying to hard to be funny. I often thought that if I were reading the pieces, they would be funnier. I admire humor writers, but they aren't always as funny off the page.
Ach. Not really. I chuckled a few times, but it was not as good as I'd expected.
Humor is extremely personal. The person who recommended this to me was over the moon about it.
