Young Mungo: Douglas Stuart
September 25 at 4:30pm
Recent Booker Prize-winning Scottish-American author Douglas Stuart returns to the TIFA stage to present his latest novel, Young Mungo. The novel uncovers an unlikely love story between Protestant Mungo and Catholic James, who should be sworn enemies in their Glasgow housing estate, where things are strongly divided along sectarian lines. Stuart paints a vivid portrayal of working-class life and a revealing story about the meaning of masculinity, the terrifying violence faced by so many queer people and the dangers of loving someone too much.
