The nervous excitement was palpable, like when cows go in fields for the summer. We discussed why everyone should paint daily, why the government were rubbish and how all homophobes and racists should be persecuted to the ends of this earth and sterilised. I was really doing it, I was finally a smug little bellend. I chain-smoked rollups and lit them with a match. One girl started screaming. This was the night I met Joe. Ensuite is a coming of age story, following the macbook-toting avant garde of Shoreditch, and Hugh's attempt to become one (he doesn't quite manage). From the funky confines of halls to Francis Bacon's screaming lover to the birdsong of Kew Gardens we see Hugh clumsily evolve from man-child to older man-child.
