    A 'dictionary' that aims to give hundreds of definitions to things there should be words for, Liff came about as a collaboration between the late, great Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams, John Lloyd and Jon Canter - and now comes Afterliff, a second collection of these place names that can be used to describe those moments you've always wished there was a word for.

    From Toames (the first furtive touching of toes in bed after a severe row with your partner) to Loudwater (a child's strongly held opinion, copies word for word from its parents) and Inverness (the loneliness of a garden chair in winter), this book is wholly funny, often profound and totally unique.

    Popular with the likes of comedians Matt Lucas and Stephen Fry, Aterliff is an essential gift for anyone who finds that there just aren't enough words to describe what happens in everyday life.

    Possibly the only drawback about the bestselling "How To Be A Woman" was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman. "Moranthology" is proof that Caitlin can actually be 'quite chatty' about many other things, including cultural, social and political issues which are usually the province of learned professors, or hot-shot wonks - and not a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar, and got it stoned. These other subjects include: Caffeine; Ghostbusters; Being Poor; Twitter; Caravans; Obama; Wales; Marijuana Addiction; Paul McCartney; The Welfare State; Sherlock; David Cameron Looking Like Ham; Amy Winehouse; Elizabeth Taylor's Eyes; Michael Jackson's Funeral; 'The Big Society'; Big Hair; Nutter-letters; Failed Nicknames; Wolverhampton'; Squirrels' Testicles; Sexy Tax; Binge-drinking; Chivalry; Rihanna's Cardigan; Boris Johnson - Albino Shag-hound; Party Bags; Hot People; Transsexuals; The Gay Moon Landings; and My Own, Untimely Death.
