On this week’s Richard Crouse Show we meet Douglas Stuart. His first novel, “Shuggie Bain,” won a shelfful of major awards, including the Booker Prize, in 2020. It told the story of an alcoholic single mother and her children living in a Glasgow tenement in the 1990s. His new novel, “Young Mungo” centers on a romance between two teenage boys – one Protestant, one Catholic. It is a gripping and revealing story about the meaning of masculinity, the push and pull of family, the violence faced by so many queer people, and the dangers of loving someone too much. In this interview we talk about growing up in Glasgow, how writing became his second career and why he named his main character after the patron saint of Glasgow.

Then, we’ll meet Tegan and Sara, the Grammy and Academy Award nominated, identical twin sisters behind the earworm “Everything is Awesome” from “The Lego Movie” and many ither hits. But we’re not talking about music today. We’re here to chat about their latest project, a new television pm Amazon Prime show based on their memoir High School.
