    Winner of the Booker Prize 2020 Shortlisted for the National Book Award for Fiction 2020 A BBC Two Between the Covers 2021 Book Choice 'We were bowled over by this first novel, which creates an amazingly intimate, compassionate, gripping portrait of addiction, courage and love.' The judges of the Booker Prize 'Douglas Stuart has written a first novel of rare and lasting beauty.' - Observer It is 1981. Glasgow is dying and good families must grift to survive. Agnes Bain has always expected more from life.She dreams of greater things: a house with its own front door and a life bought and paid for outright (like her perfect, but false, teeth). But Agnes is abandoned by her philandering husband, and soon she and her three children find themselves trapped in a decimated mining town. As she descends deeper into drink, the children try their best to save her, yet one by one they must abandon her to save themselves.It is her son Shuggie who holds out hope the longest. Shuggie is different. Fastidious and fussy, he shares his mother's sense of snobbish propriety.The miners' children pick on him and adults condemn him as no' right. But Shuggie believes that if he tries his hardest, he can be normal like the other boys and help his mother escape this hopeless place. Douglas Stuart's Shuggie Bain lays bare the ruthlessness of poverty, the limits of love, and the hollowness of pride.A counterpart to the privileged Thatcher-era London of Alan Hollinghurst's The Line of Beauty, it also recalls the work of Edouard Louis, Frank McCourt, and Hanya Yanagihara, a blistering debut by a brilliant writer with a powerful and important story to tell.

    Shuggie Bain er den uforglemmelige fortælling om drengen Hugh ”Shuggie” Bain, en sød og ensom dreng som tilbringer sin barndom i et nedslidt alment boligbyggeri i firsernes Glasgow. Thatchers politik har gjort fædre og sønner arbejdsløse, og snart hærges byen af fattigdom, misbrug og forfald.Shuggies mor Agnes lever livet hårdt. Shuggie forguder hende, men hun er også en sten i skoen for både ham og hans søskende. Hun drømmer om at få foden under eget bord, mens hun bestiller tilfældige postordreting på kredit og forsvinder ind i sin egen verden, mens hendes mand ser andre kvinder. Agnes drikker, og hun bruger langt det meste af familiens understøttelse på guldøl, som hun drikker af tekrus. Agnes’ større børn finder på hver sin måde væk i sikker afstand af deres alkoholiserede mor, og Shuggie overlades alene til hendes udsving mellem hovedløs druk og tørlagt fornuft. Shuggie længes desperat efter at være normal, selvom hans omverden ser ham som en afviger. Agnes elsker sin søn, men i sit misbrug formår hun alligevel ikke at give ham den støtte han har brug for, for at finde sig selv og forstå sin seksualitet. Shuggie Bain er en rørende roman om afhængighed, seksualitet og kærlighed, et episk portræt af en familie i arbejderklassen som man sjældent møder i romanens verden. Læsningen bringer mindelser om Édouard Louis, Alan Hollinghurst og Hanya Yanagihara. En tindrende debut. Pressen skrev om Shuggie Bain:Et mesterværk. – Washington PostEn elegant åbenbaring af en debut. Hjerteknusende. – GuardianUfatteligt levende. Efterlader sin læser overvældet og imponeret. – New York Times Book ReviewOrd som ”kraftfuld”, ”indtagende”, ”en universel fortælling” bruges ofte i boganmeldelser. Men sjældent er de så meget på sin plads som når det kommer til Shuggie Bain. – Sunday Times

    Mungo og James burde ikke være venner. I 1990’ernes hypermaskuline og voldsramte Glasgow, hvor protestanter og katolikker står stejlt på hver sin side, er de to teenagedrenges følelser for hinanden totalt forbudt, og drømmen om at flygte fra de trøstesløse baggårde kolliderer konstant med skrækken for at blive opdaget. Især Mungo kæmper for at holde venskabet og sit sande jeg hemmeligt for omverdenen og for storebroren Hamish, den lokale bandeleder, som har et barskt omdømme at opretholde. Da Mungos mor sender ham på en fisketur med to tvivlsomme mænd, må den ængstelige og godhjertede Mungo opbyde alt sit mod og al sin styrke for at komme tilbage i sikkerhed, til et sted, hvor han og James måske kan have en fremtid sammen.Unge Mungo er en hjertegribende beretning om en faderløs søn og kærlighedens mirakel. Om unge mænd, der kæmper for at kunne være hvem de er, og elske hvem de vil. Om maskulinitetens grænser og farerne ved at elske for meget.
