Caitlin Moran

A Conversation with Marta Salicrú

Not content with being the most hilarious, foul-mouthed and autobiographical columnist in the British press, or with her bestselling essay How to be a Woman (Ebury Press, 2011), Caitlin Moran had to go and write a great novel, How to Build a Girl (Ebury Press, 2014). The book is a thinly-disguised first-person account of her childhood in a large working-class family, her first steps in the music press, and the trials and tribulations involved in piecing together the being known as Caitlin Moran. A staunch supporter of cool pop and enthusiastic fan of anything that comes out of Scotland, music journalist Marta Salicrú interviews Caitlin Moran, one of her favourite authors.
