‘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.

More praise for Hollie McNish:

‘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

‘Provides beautifully written solidarity’ INDEPENDENT
