520    "Shuggie Bain is the unforgettable story of young Hugh 
       "Shuggie" Bain, a sweet and lonely boy who spends his 
       1980s childhood in public housing in Glasgow, Scotland. 
       Thatcher's war on heavy industry has put husbands and sons
       out of work, and the city's notorious drugs epidemic is 
       waiting in the wings. Shuggie's mother Agnes walks a 
       wayward path: she is Shuggie's guiding light but a burden 
       for his artistic brother and practical sister. She dreams 
       of a house with its own front door while she flicks 
       through the pages of the Freemans catalogue, ordering a 
       little happiness on credit, anything to brighten up her 
       grey life. Married to a "whoremaster" of a husband, Agnes 
       keeps her pride by looking good - her beehive, make-up, 
       and pearly-white false teeth offer a glamourous image of a
       Glaswegian Elizabeth Taylor. But under the surface, Agnes 
       finds increasing solace in drink, and she drains away the 
       lion's share of each week's benefits - all the family has 
       to live on - on cans of extra-strong lager hidden in 
       handbags and poured into tea mugs. Agnes's older children 
       find their own ways to get a safe distance from their 
       mother, abandoning Shuggie to look after her as she swings
       between alcoholic binges and sobriety. He is meanwhile 
       doing all he can to somehow become the normal boy he 
       desperately longs to be, but everyone has realized that 
       Shuggie is "no right," and now Agnes's addiction has the 
       power to eclipse everyone close to her-even and especially
       her beloved Shuggie." --|cFrom publisher's description.
