'To call Alice "just another pig" would be the gravest insult.' Alice the Large Black pig was Paul Heiney's best friend, his confidante and his therapist. This is the story of their tempestuous relationship with all its ups-and-downs, from her arrival as a 'large, black and expensive' Christmas present for his wife to her last days as the matriarch of his traditional farm. In A Pig Called Alice, Heiney walks us through why lop-eared pigs are the best to raise (they can't see you coming), how to escape a sow that's decided you're her next mate (throw a bucket and run), and how, actually, pigs might have just got this whole 'life' situation sorted out.
