LA TIMES FESTIVAL OF BOOKS PRESENTS: ANDREW O'HAGAN and DOUGLAS STUART in conversation with ANOUSHA SAKOUI

Two award-winning Scottish authors discuss their semi-autobiographical, coming-of-age novels with L.A. Times staff writer Anousha Sakoui. Mayflies and Shuggie Bain are tender, beautiful portraits of a time and a place -- 1980s Scotland -- that will captivate readers.

Andrew O’Hagan is the author of the novels Our Fathers, Personality, and Be Near Me, which was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and won the L.A. Times Book Prize for Fiction. His latest work, Mayflies, is the winner of the L.A. Times Christopher Isherwood Prize for Autobiographical prose. His work has appeared in the London Review of Books, the New York Review of Books, the New Yorker, and The Guardian (U.K.). In 2003, O’Hagan was named one of Granta’s Best Young British Novelists. He lives in London, England.

Douglas Stuart is a Scottish-American author. His debut novel, Shuggie Bain,  won the Booker Prize and is a finalist for the L.A. Times Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction. His short stories "Found Wanting" and "The Englishman" were published in The New Yorker magazine. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, he has an MA from the Royal College of Art in London and since 2000 he has lived and worked in New York City.
