    Shuggie Bain

    Recommended by Genevieve Fay, our Communities Programme Officer:

    Having recently been shortlisted for the Booker Prize, it is no wonder that many people, including First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, are reaching for a copy of Shuggie Bain. Douglas Stuart has written this powerful debut novel drawing on his own life experiences.

    Set in 1980s Glasgow, which seems to be unravelling under the weight of its own identity crisis, families struggle with unemployment, crushing poverty, and the waves of addiction that are engulfing much of the city. It is a book of both sadness and beauty, a chronicle of memorable characters, their defiance and hope in the face of the grim realities of life and survival.

    Love and Other Thought Experiments

    This impressive literary debut takes as its premise and inspiration ten of the best-known thought experiments in philosophy - the 'what ifs' of philosophical investigation - and uses them to talk about love in a wholly unique way.
