Douglas Stuart: Shuggie Bain

2020 Booker Prize winner Douglas Stuart discusses his modern masterpiece, Shuggie Bain. Douglas has been compared to Alan Hollinghurst, Frank McCourt, Hanya Yanagihara and countless others, but this extraordinary debut makes it clear that he is a true original, and there is only one Shuggie Bain. Douglas is joined by Benjamin Law.

This recording was taken from a live Sydney Writers' Festival event in January 2021 as part of Sydney Festival.
