Caitlin Moran's teenage novel republished

Corgi is reissuing Caitlin Moran’s The Chronicles of Narmo, the children’s novel she wrote as a 15-year-old.

The semi-autobiographical book was originally published in 1992 when the author was unknown. Moran has written a new introduction to the novel.

Annie Eaton, fiction publisher at RHCP, first published Narmo and is also publishing the reissue. “From the moment we met [Moran] in 1991, aged 16—she came in with her dad—we knew she was a prodigious, sharp and hilarious talent,” Eaton said. “She now has a huge following. We hang on her every word, admiring the way she’s brave enough to say the things most of us are hardly brave enough to think. I’m very proud of having been Caitlin’s first ‘book’ mum.”

The Chronicles of Narmo is published on 24th October (p/b, £6.99). Moran’s non-fiction titles How To Be a Woman and Moranthology are published by Ebury, which has also bought rights to Moran’s next book, How To Build a Girl.
