For almost a decade, broadcaster Paul Heiney shared his life with a pig called Alice on his farm in Suffolk. It was an often tempestuous relationship, although ultimately a very loving one. Over the years, after observing Alice’s ways and those of her many offspring, he came to see that pigs had ways of ordering their lives from which we could all learn. Live Like a Pig is the story of his years with Alice, the finest pig that ever lived. He tells the tales of her adventures with new-born piglets, the visiting boar, the escapes and recaptures, the day she took hold of his trousers and said, ‘come here, you’re all mine now!’ And how he escaped in the nick of time.
