Set in late-noughties England, Quarter Life captures a unique and somewhat unsettling aspect of life as a man entering adulthood. Told only through weekends, the novel follows twenty-year-old Sam, a character who feels out of place at university in Nottingham and is drawn to responsibility-free life back at home, where the familiarity of his friends, dysfunctional working-class family, drink, drugs and sex seem preferable.
