“A genuinely original talent.”

Few authors praised by Germaine Greer have also been described as 'Britain’s funniest writer' by Time Out, but Caitlin Moran sees no contradiction between the two. In almost twenty years as a columnist for the London Times, Moran has perfected the art of using comedy to deliver an inspirational message. She believes passionately that feminism should have the same iconoclastic appeal as rock’n’roll and, in her memoir 'How to be a Woman', she set out to reclaim feminism from the jaws of dogma and cant, one gag at a time. The result was an award-winning bestseller that ‘introduced a new generation to feminism’ (The Observer), garnering rave reviews in everything from The Guardian to Grazia and winning a host of prestigious awards, including Book of the Year at the British Book Awards. In this exclusive event for Dublin Writers Festival, Caitlin Moran brings her sparkling wit and razor sharp intelligence to the National Concert Hall.
