Hollie McNish – the lobster tour

Saturday 6 April 2024

St Mary's, Totnes

After a run of sold out shows up and down the UK, Hollie McNish is back with a brand new book, Lobster and other things I'm learning to love. A Sunday Times bestselling writer whose live readings are not to be missed, expect strong language and adult content, gift-wrapped in gorgeously crafted poetry. In Lobster, Hollie brings her much-loved style to questions of friendship, flags and newborns, clocks, cocks and volvos, shining a ridiculous and beautifully poetic lens upon all those things we have been taught to hate, and which we might just learn to love again.
