Book Club – July 2021

Book Club today was a discussion on “Shuggie Bain” by Douglas Stuart. It was the Booker Winner this year and we all found it remarkable. The story is set in 1980s Glasgow and Shuggie is the youngest in a family of three whose mother is an alcoholic. She is pathetic and endearing and loves her family while drinking away their food and clothing money. The relationship¬†between the three siblings is touching.¬† A highly recommended book.¬† We also have had the pleasure of welcoming three new members, two of whom joined us on zoom for our discussion and we are looking forward to getting together in person before too long.
