Fergus MacFarlane is a celebrated photographer partying in the heat of noughties London. One night he returns home to discover ugly cracks in his life: his past and his present are catching up with him. Who is he really? How did he get here? Fergus was eight when his fisherman father drowned, leaving him in a damp tenement with his mother - and her resentment. In the wild landscape, Fergus searched for a way out.
Follow Fergus from scabby-kneed schoolboy to ambitious artist, from a squat to a mansion, from Hebridean islands to Hoxton galleries, from Presbyterianism to hedonism. Why did Fergus run from his past? And how does he get back?
