Tune in on Thursday 14th January at 1pm (NZT) to join in this conversation with 2020 Booker Prize winning author of Shuggie Bain, Douglas Stuart.

Our friend, Cheryl Pearl Sucher from McNally Jackson book shop in NYC talks to Douglas Stuart, the Booker Prize-winning author of Shuggie Bain. Lou will be waiting in the wings to ask Douglas a couple of things too!

Shuggie Bain is the unforgettable story of young Hugh "Shuggie" Bain, a sweet and lonely boy who spends his 1980s childhood in run-down public housing in Glasgow, Scotland. Thatcher's policies have put husbands and sons out of work, and the city's notorious drugs epidemic is waiting in the wings.

Read more about the book here:

Douglas Stuart was born and raised in Glasgow. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, he moved to New York City, where he began a career in fashion design. Shuggie Bain is his first novel. His writing has appeared in the New Yorker and Literary Hub.
