Shuggie Bain - Douglas Stuart
Shuggie Bain! Aw Gawd! Don't get me started on how great this novel is, right outa the shoot Stuart offers us Glasgow's own Agnes, and Shuggie, two of the most well developed characters I've had the pleasure of being introduced to in a long time, with the rest of the motley crew of characters spot on as well. I'm still thinking of ways I would have tried to help Agnes, and Shuggie. But alas ... So Good!
