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.

Exclusive Edition with new colourway, foiling, extra poems and exclusive flaps 

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.

“Perfectly Controlled Fury in Poetic Form”

This was really the logical next step for McNish after the brilliance of handling pregnancy and birth in the book, Nobody Told Me. Here she expands upon what it is to be a woman, looking at her own childhood and... More
