He is mocked as a misfit by his university friends while his friends from Essex view him suspiciously as a condescending intellectual. This tension marks his friendships: his brotherly but guarded bond with upper middle class James, whom he meets at university, and his alienation from his childhood friends and family.In the liminal moment of early adulthood, when his life seems in stasis, George struggles to make sense of time and endeavours to find its purpose.

He pursues relationships with a succession of women: from his first sexual encounter with an older and alienated American woman, Paula, to his obsession with Jamess on-off lover, Julia.Ambitious in scope, unsentimental and daring in its portrayal of human relationships, The Desire Path is an extraordinary contemporary examination of young millennial life.
