Scottish-American writer (and fashion designer) Douglas Stuart became one of the most talked about debutantes last year with his novel 'Shuggie Bain', which was awarded the prestigious Booker Prize.

A heart-wrenchingly moving first novel set in Glasgow during the Thatcher years, Shuggie Bain tells the story of a boy’s doomed attempt to save his proud, alcoholic mother from her addiction.

Douglas Stuart will be interviewed by Danish writer Jesper Stein, who has recently published a highly acclaimed and calamitous portrait of his parents.
