On 3rd September, author and journalist Caitlin Moran’s More Than a Woman (Ebury), is launching with a live online show, in which she will address "how bloody hard it is to be a middle-aged woman in a world that still doesn't know how to load the dishwasher properly, and keeps ruining all the good knives and pans".
