Recently read Caitlin Moran’s How to Be a Woman. While it isn’t perfect, I really enjoyed it overall and was often that girl awkwardly laughing out loud on public transport while I read it. Here are a few good links about Caitlin:
The New York Times review
Jen Doll at the Atlantic Wire interviews Moran
NPR’s Fresh Air looks at the book
A Hairpin Q&A with Moran
Plus, prior to reading the book, I read a lot about Bitch magazine deciding not to run an interview with Moran over some flip tweets she wrote about Lena Dunham and race on Girls.
You can read an overview of the whole scuffle here.
Bitch shared their decision to not run the piece here.
And then Salon ended up publishing the original piece (which was commissioned by Bitch) and you can read about that, as well as Moran’s response, here.
