'Rock n roll' tour to promote Moran novel

Caitlin Moran is to go on a “rock n roll literary tour” to promote her new book, How to Build a Girl (Ebury Press).

Times columnist Moran’s novel is described as “The Bell Jar written by Rizzo from 'Grease', with a soundtrack by Hole, Happy Mondays and My Bloody Valentine”.

The coming-of-age novel follows 14-year-old girl, Johanna Morrigan, and is the follow up to Moran's autobiographical book, How to be a Woman (Ebury Press) which was released last year.

The author will visit nine venues across the country with her live show to promote How to Build a Girl, including two shows in London and two in Brighton.

How to Build a Girl is released on 3rd July.

The full tour includes:
