Hollie McNish: Slug… and other things I’ve been told to hate
Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose live readings are not to be missed. Expect strong language and adult content ribbon-wrapped in carefully and caringly sculpted poetry as Hollie reads from and chats about her much anticipated new collection: Slug…and other things i’ve been told to hate.
From Finnish mermaids and soppy otters to Kellogg’s anti-masturbation pants, Slug is a book that holds a mirror up to the world, past and present, through Hollie’s driving, funny and beautiful words. A blend of poetry, memoir and short story, Slug is an absolutely joyful read about the human condition: from birth to death and her attempt to manage the tangle in-between.
