Waterstones Says

Gloriously earthy and accessible, McNish’s mash-up of prose and poetry covers the modern female condition with lashings of wit, intelligence and irreverent wisdom.

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here.

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.

I’ve never read any book laid out this way either. It is a combo of true stories, poems, and short fictional stories. In the... More
