Overview

'The book everyone's talking about' The Times

'Beautiful classic satire' Ricky Gervais

'Hilarious . . . the most artful form of subtle parody' Joe Rogan

'Titania McGrath is a genius' Spectator

'Just as Bridget Jones was the embodiment of the anxiety-ridden Nineties feminist, a creation whose diary entries encapsulated all our hopes, fears and failures, so Titania McGrath is her millennial successor, a girl every bit as lost and confused, every bit as accurately observed - and equally, catastrophically, hilarious.' Sarah Vine, Daily Mail

In Woke, Titania McGrath demonstrates how everybody can play their part in the pursuit of social justice. As a millennial icon on the forefront of online activism, Titania is uniquely placed to guide her readers through the often bewildering array of terminology and concepts that constitute twenty-first-century 'wokeness'. These new ideas often leave the general public bemused, particularly if they don't read the Guardian.

Being woke is actually much easier than people think. As Titania demonstrates, anyone can be an activist. By simply adding a rainbow flag to your Facebook profile, or calling out an elderly person who doesn't understand what 'non-binary' means, you can change the world for the better. Indeed, social media has now made it possible to show how virtuous you are without having to do anything at all.

Timely and indispensable, Titania's step-by-step guide will help you to become the woke person you need to be in an increasingly progressive world. In a non-patronising manner, Titania will explain why you are wrong about everything and how to become more like her.

OK, I admit I’m only on page eleven - and, lmao! FWIW, I’m a woman that “identified” as liberal and was a registered Democrat for decades, until my circle of friends I had since childhood went bat-crazy these last few years. After the 100th time of hearing, “Never say that!” over seemingly innocuous commentary, I really began to digest the fact that something had gone awry with my former liberal cohorts. This book, in the first few pages, reads just like they live and talk! I had never heard of this comedian until reading an article about an interview concerning his parody Twitter account. He’s hilarious in an age when being an actually funny comedian is not “acceptable”. I normally never leave a review for a book until I’ve finished it and ponder what I’ve read, but this deserves a quick thumbs up since there are currently zero reviews. I needed to come across this with all the hate and misery being spread about by the far “tolerant” left these days. Tried the free sample and had to buy it.
