Hollie McNish

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.

Hollie McNish is an award-winning poet based between Cambridge and Glasgow. She won the Ted Hughes Award for Nobody Told Me and has published three other collections – Plum, Cherry Pie and Papers.

I've loved her work for years.
- Jo Brand

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.
- Matt Haig
