Our thoughts…

From the beginning to the end Slug is filled with pages that you will relate to at some point in your life, if not right now.

Hollie McNish has nailed it with her poetry and this is a completely fantastic collection! Hollie has conveyed compassion, rage and empathy through her words – no easy task!

Huge thanks to another wonderful Author – Gillian Harvey – for sending me this absolutely brilliant collection of poetry.

About the Book…

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.

Genre: Poetry
Publication: May 2021
