Caitlin Moran Novel To Be Made Into A Film

caitlin moran portrait

It’s no secret that we are more than a little obsessed with the wonderful Caitlin Moran.

We also couldn’t be more delighted to hear the news this morning that her not-so-fictional first novel has been selected for a film adaptation by Monumental Pictures and Film4.

How to Build a Girl centers on a young girl who moves to London in an attempt to make it as a music critic away from her family in Wolverhampton. The narrator, Johanna Morrigan, is a fat, working class girl from a large family, who gets a job aged 16 at a music magazine, wears black, sleeps around, gets cystitis, and re-names herself.

Caitlin Moran (whose father is Irish by the way) astoundingly wrote the book in six months while doing the day job (columnist with The Times) and tirelessly juggling motherhood.

And now, our favourite feminist is set to have her first novel hit the silver screen and we’ll be counting down until it hits Irish screens.

So, who’s buying the popcorn?
