Caitlin Moran on class and politics

Author Caitlin Moran talks to BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis about her new book, How to Build a Girl.

This is Moran's third book but it is her first work of fiction. The protagonist, Johanna is remarkably similar to Caitlin as the book charts the story of a young woman from a large family trying to navigate her way through life.

Moran told Maitlis if her "book is success, I want to write a trilogy".
