‘'Prepare your hearts, for Douglas Stuart is back.'’
The Observer

Protestant Mungo and Catholic James are caught between two of Glasgow’s housing estates where young working-class men divide themselves along sectarian lines, and fight territorial battles for the sake of reputation. They should be sworn enemies and yet they become best friends. As they begin to fall in love, they dream of escaping the grey city. But the threat of discovery is constant and the punishment unspeakable.

Young Mungo 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.
