Tracey and Jake have a decent-sized, south-facing garden in West Sussex, but the space simply doesn’t work for their family. As a full time wheelchair user, Tracey struggles to navigate it without assistance. Jake, meanwhile, finds the space uninspirin­g and gets tired of trying to keep it all looking neat and tidy.

Marie Le Conte explores the shared experience­s of people aged 29 to 33, members of the so-called crisis cohort, who have had their adult lives book-ended by the financial crash of 2008 and the huge economic downturn caused by the coronaviru­s.

Marie examines what defines this generation of young, or not so young, people and what adulthood means for them. She explores the ways that living through the crisis has shaped emotional literacy and economic fortunes.
