This time, the book, titled More Than A Woman, focuses on being a middle-aged woman and the trials and tribulations that come with that label. Waterstones reassures us that the novel is, ‘very bit as perceptive and hilarious’ as Moran’s previous works.
The description reads:
‘If only she had 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? Where did all that stuff in the kitchen drawers come from? Can feminists have Botox? Why has wine turned against you? How can you tell the difference between a Teenage Micro-Breakdown, and The Real Thing? Has feminism gone too far? And, as always, WHO’S LOOKING AFTER THE CHILDREN?’
You might think that you’re not the right demographic for this novel, that one of Moran’s other books, How To Be A Woman or How To Build A Girl, would be better suited for you. However, there are many, many things that happen to the female body and it’s time we started learning about these things from those who are currently living our futures. Ebury Publishers states:
‘Now with ageing parents, teen kids, a bigger bum and a To-Do list without end, in More Than a Woman she tells us what happens next’.
More Than A Woman is available to buy from September 3rd. If you need a bit of Moran’s witty, feminist remarks before then, the film adaptation of How To Build A Girl, starring Beanie Feldstein, is set for release next month.
