'The book everyone's talking about' The Times (Book of the Year)

'Titania McGrath is a genius' Spectator (Book of the Year)

'Beautiful classic satire' Ricky Gervais

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

'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.

Reviews

Titania McGrath is a genius--Spectator
Absolutely hilarious--Piers Morgan
As a straight white man I don't think I was allowed to read the @TitaniaMcGrath book. But I did anyway, and I'm here to recommend it. Funniest thing I've ever read. Brilliant--Daniel Sloss
Why Titania is perfect for our times . . . Titania is a creation of genius . . . Finally, the plodding, establishment satire of recent years might have finally been subject to the disruption it has so badly needed . . . not just funny, but fatally accurate and true--Douglas Murray, Unherd
The latest genius twist in Britain's long tradition of satirical spoof . . . Brilliantly funny take on a generation obsessed with gender fluidity, sexism, stereotyping, fat-shaming, no platforming . . .--Virginia Blackburn, Daily Express
The funniest spoof Twitter account bar none. Titania's feed is a delight--Charles Moore, Evening Standard
The book everyone's talking about--The Times
She pricks pomposity and tempers moral certitude with a hint of doubt; in short, she keeps us honest. And as a lover of satire, I treasure anyone who can hold a mirror up with wit and intelligence to the more sanctimonious and narrow-minded elements of the left that bother and suffocate people, even me--Shappi Khorsandi, Independent
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
Hilarious . . . perfectly captures the chiding, self-righteous, intolerant, joyless tone of the "woke" Stasi--Janice Turner, The Times
Hilarious--Evening Standard
Titania McGrath mercilessly satires the Left's online umbrage brigade, the permanently offended, those who have taken on the role of policing thoughts and words to the point of absurdity--The Herald
Absolutely brilliant . . . has revealed the malign hilarity of woke culture--New Criterion
This may be the most important book of 2019--Standpoint
Outrageous and hilarious--Irish Independent
Hilarious--Camilla Long, Sunday Times
Woke is the funniest, best-crafted satire against the stifling conformity and censorship of illiberal liberals that I've ever seen--Entertainment Focus
She's at her sharpest when taking a quote from a real-life idiot of the left and just tweaking it a little--Rod Liddle, Spectator
A sharp satire on the new Puritanism--Catholic Herald
Hilarious . . . the most artful form of subtle parody--Joe Rogan
