An online, pre-recorded conversation between Douglas Stuart – Booker Prize-Winner – and Scottish novelist Alan Warner. Join this talk to learn more about Douglas Stuart’s remarkable journey – in life and in art – and his two hugely successful novels, Shuggie Bain and Young Mungo. These two writers will talk about the nuts and bolts of writing, but also about the often long and winding road to publication and overcoming what we might feel refuses us permission to write.
Douglas Stuart was born and raised in Glasgow. After graduating from the Royal College of Art, he moved to New York, where he began a career in fashion design. Shuggie Bain, his first novel, won the Booker Prize and both 'Debut of the Year' and 'Book of The Year' at the British Book Awards. It was also shortlisted for the US National Book Award for Fiction, among many other awards. His short stories have appeared in the New Yorker and his essay on gender, anxiety and class was published by Lit Hub. He is currently writing the screenplay for the tv adaptation of Shuggie Bain to be made by A24. Douglas divides his time between New York and Glasgow. Young Mungo is his second novel, and was a no.1 bestseller on publication.
