What to expect

‘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.

Critics Review

  • Titania McGrath is a genius

    Spectator
  • Hilarious . . . the most artful form of subtle parody

    Joe Rogan
  • 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
  • The book everyone’s talking about

    The Times
  • 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

    Unherd
  • 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
