The Chronicles of Narmo

Author(s): Caitlin Moran


Fifteen-year-old Morag Narmo really doesn't want to go to school any more. She and her siblings would rather feed their heads into the waste-disposal unit than "do the academical". So they are all stunned when their parents whisk them out of school and embark on a home-schooling experiment. But with five children, two unruly pets and some extremely eccentric attitudes, the educational experiment soon descends into chaos...Witty, razor-sharp and laugh-out-loud funny, The Chronicles of Narmo show us how before Caitlin Moran knew How to be a Woman, she had to find out How to be a Girl.

Product Information

Before the woman came the girl - Caitlin Moran's hilarious debut novel, inspired by her own childhood and written when she was just fifteen years old.

Caitlin Moran is an award-winning columnist, interviewer and critic for The Times, as well as the author of the hilarious and provocative How to be a Woman. The Chronicles of Narmo is her debut novel, written when she was just sixteen years old and based on her own childhood experiences ('Narmo' being an anagram of 'Moran'). It demonstrates the precocious wit that has made her one of the most popular writers of the day - on publication, Terry Pratchett said "Oh God, this good already and she's only sixteen".
