“In my earliest memories, my mother would stand in front of me with a beer or vodka”
Douglas Stuart grew up in poverty with an alcoholic mother and became a sought-after fashion designer. Today he writes novels – and has achieved worldwide success with his debut.
She left her previous job as a fashion designer for brands such as Calvin Klein and Gap and from autumn 2017 devoted herself entirely to writing. The book was inspired by the tragic story of his mother, who was addicted to alcohol. As he is talked about, you realize just how deep Stuart’s grief is. Sometimes his voice breaks, he has to try to complete his sentences.
