Lobster cover

A brand-new collection from the award-winning poet, the companion piece to the Sunday Times bestselling Slug.

This book is written out of both hate and love for the world

As people, we are capable of both love and hate; amazement and disgust; fun and misery.

So why do we live in a world that is constantly telling us to hate, both ourselves and others? We are told constantly to be repulsed by our own bodies, bodies that let us laugh and sweat and eat toast, amongst other activities; to be ashamed of pleasure; to be embarrassed by fun. In this brand-new collection, Hollie McNish brings her inimitable style to the question of what have been taught to hate, and if we might learn to love again.
