Over a glass of fizz, Caitlin Moran and Fay Weldon, both feminists and writers, discuss love, life and voracious libidos — and it’s a real treat to eavesdrop.
Moran, whose memoir/polemic How to Be a Woman has been a bestseller, gaily recalls her peculiar childhood, revealing she only chose the pen over prostitution because her mum told her she’d have to wait until she was 16 to try the latter.
Novelist Weldon entertains with anecdotes such as making a detour on the way to hospital to give birth so she could post her first script to Granada TV. Neither does she shy away from giving Moran career advice.
Journalist Caitlin Moran and novelist Fay Weldon compare their lives and careers, as well as sharing their views on feminism, sex, fame and the portrayal of women in the media.
