Catherine Mayer on Writing Attack of the Fifty Foot Women

Catherine Mayer has never been one to sit back and wait for the story. Having made her name as a journalist, first with The Economist and then eventually with TIME where she rose to become Editor at Large, she turned her attention to tackling the same issues on a larger canvas, publishing Amortality: The Pleasures and Perils of Living Agelessly and the royal biography, Charles: The Heart of a King. Now as she turns her attention to the challenges of contemporary feminism in Attack of the Fifty Foot Women she talks candidly to Waterstones about setting up her own political party, why women need a new manifesto and the classic works that have inspired her along the way.
