Booker Prize winner Douglas Stuart in conversation with Damian Barr, at the Literary Salon April 2022

EXTRA SPECIAL EPISODE ALERT! Enjoy this full-length Literary Salon with Douglas Stuart, hot-off-the-press!

Last week we held a very special evening with Douglas in conversation with Damian at an in-person Salon in Brighton – it was an incredible conversation, and we’re still thinking about it. So join us as we celebrate Douglas’ brilliant new novel ‘Young Mungo’, the story of two boys, two tribes and two Scotlands. Catholic James and Protestant Mungo live in the violent, macho world of Glasgow’s council schemes. They dream of escaping the gangs and the grey, fractured city. Will their dream come true?

‘Thanks so much for a wonderful Salon Damian. I could have listened to Douglas all night. Such a tender, interesting and poignant interview.’ – Araminta Hall

Young Mungo is out now and a definite must-read for 2022. If you’d like to support the Salon podcast and indie bookshops at the same time, you can grab a copy from our shop at (where you can also pick up a copy of Douglas’ Booker-winning debut, Shuggie Bain).
