Douglas Stuart with Val McDermid: Knives, Doves and Forbidden Love image

Shuggie Bain won the Booker Prize, sold over a million copies and catapulted Douglas Stuart to instant worldwide fame – his follow-up is doing nothing to dampen the hype. Set in the 1990s amid the brutal landscape of sectarian working-class Glasgow, Young Mungo is a tender and terrifying love story.
We’re thrilled to welcome the New York-based Scot back to Edinburgh to discuss his latest gut-punch of a novel with Val McDermid.
