Review

There’s an extra reason to tune in to this episode of Rufus Hound’s comedy interview series, where celebs come on to gamely read from their awful adolescent journals: for author and ace newspaper columnist Caitlin Moran, her life at 15 and 16 was so extraordinary that Channel 4 are planning to base a sitcom on it, which Moran herself will write.

The show, working title The Big Object, is set to focus on an overweight teen’s family life and hunt for a boyfriend. This blast from the source material includes Moran’s contemporaneous reaction to being home-schooled in Wolverhampton, to living with seven younger siblings and indeed, amid all that, publishing The Chronicles of Narmo, her first and only novel.

Summary

Journalist and author Caitlin Moran reads entries from her teenage diary to Rufus Hound. She recounts the days when she was home-schooled in Wolverhampton, shared a small house with her seven brothers and sisters, and had a novel published when she was just 15 years old.
