    There were many things that Hollie McNish didn't know before she was pregnant. How her family and friends would react; that Mr Whippy would be off the menu; how quickly ice can melt on a stomach. These were on top of the many other things she didn't know about babies: how to stand while holding one; how to do a poetry gig with your baby as a member of the audience; how drum'n'bass can make a great lullaby. But Hollie learned. And she's still learning, slowly.

    Hollie McNish visits the Audible Studios to talk about her book Nobody Told Me: Poetry and Parenthood. The book uses stories and poems to create a snapshot of motherhood, in which Hollie talks about everything from morning sickness and breastfeeding in public to the impossibility of ever finishing a hot cup of tea. Hollie has been performing poetry since 2005 and has gone viral on YouTube for her slick, poignant, political rhymes. She won the UK Slam Poetry Competition in 2009.

    Hollie McNish has thrilled and entranced audiences the length and breadth of the UK with her compelling and powerful performances. Plum, her debut for Picador Poetry, is a wise, sometimes rude and piercingly candid account of her memories from childhood to attempted adulthood. This is a book about growing up, about flesh, fruit, friendships, work and play - and the urgent need to find a voice for the poems that will somehow do the whole glorious riot of it justice.
