Douglas Stuart in Conversation with Alan Cumming | Douglas Stuart 與 Alan Cumming 對話

2021年 02月 26日

“For me, ‘Shuggie Bain’ is a love story…It’s about love before it’s about addiction.” (Douglas Stuart, New York Times Oct 23, 2020)

「對我而言,《Shuggie Bain》不只是一個關於酒癮的故事,當中的愛更動人心弦。」
(Douglas Stuart,《紐約時報》,2020年10月23日)

Hong Kong International Literary Festival and Bookazine invite you to a conversation between 2020 Booker Prize winner Douglas Stuart and award-winning actor, author, filmmaker and activist Alan Cumming, presented by Montclair Literary Festival. Stuart’s debut novel, Shuggie Bain, is a heartbreaking story of addiction, sexuality, and love. It follows the childhood of Hugh “Shuggie” Bain and his wayward, alchoholic mother Agnes, and is also an epic portrayal of a working-class family in 1980s Glasgow. In naming Shuggie Bain the winner, the Booker Prize judges said: “We were bowled over by this first novel….It’s a desperately sad, almost-hopeful examination of family and the destructive powers of desire.”

Join us on March 25 at 8:00 pm to hear Douglas and Alan discuss Shuggie Bain, family and growing up in 1980s Scotland, and at 9:00 pm we present a live Q&A with Douglas Stuart from his home in New York. Email your questions in advance to info@festival.org.hk or post them on our event platform during the event.

Tickets cost $200 and include:

  • Conversation between Douglas Stuart and Alan Cumming
  • Live Q&A with Douglas Stuart
  • A copy of Shuggie Bain; the first 100 copies signed by Douglas Stuart
