How do you follow up a Booker Prize victory?
We’d suggest making like Douglas Stuart and having another book previously in the works before you'd even released the winning novel.
Young Mungo will come out April 5, 2022, and according to a video shared on Twitter, Stuart was working on it before Shuggie Bain was published and had finished it before Shuggie was nominated for the Booker.
The upcoming novel is also set against a working-class background; this time, it’s the love story of a Protestant man and a Catholic one.
