'One of the best poets we have' MATT HAIG

'She writes with honesty, conviction, humour and love' KAE TEMPEST

'Hollie always articulates exactly how I feel' CHARLY COX

The new collection of poetry and prose from the Ted Hughes Award-winning author of Nobody Told Me

From Finnish saunas and soppy otters to grief, grandparents and Kellogg's anti-masturbation pants, Slug is a book which holds a mirror lovingly up to the world, past and present, through Hollie's driving, funny, hopeful poetry and prose. Slug is about the human condition: of birth and death and how we manage the possibilities in-between.

'The inimitable words of poet/goddess Hollie McNish once again hold up honest, damn funny and refreshing takes on the everydayness of our lives . . . Never have we needed her more' STYLIST

Praise for Slug: and other things I've been told to hate

  • I love Hollie's poems. There is such raw honesty and warmth and often humour within them. She is one of the best poets we have

  • Hollie's poems are deep and delicate. They move across you in a way that's so gentle you almost don't realise how they've gone straight for the gut till you're thinking of them, by accident, days later. She writes with honesty, conviction, humour and love

  • Piercing poetry . . . The inimitable words of poet/goddess Hollie McNish once again hold up honest, damn funny and refreshing takes on the everydayness of our lives: the social demands, sex and orgasms, our bodies, judgement from friends (and ourselves). Never have we needed her more - Stylist

  • Her rhymes have a driving quality, urgent words pinning down fleeting feelings, and her prose is warm and conversational, like speaking to a friend - Observer

  • I've loved her work for years

  • Provides beautifully written solidarity - Independent
