About Slug...and other things i’ve been told to hate

From Finnish mermaids and soppy otters to Kellogg's anti-masturbation pants, Slug is a book that holds a mirror up to the world, past and present, through Hollie's driving, funny and beautiful words. A blend of poetry, memoir and short story, Slug is an absolutely joyful read about the human condition: from birth to death and her attempt to manage the tangle in-between.
