You know how people say “think outside the box”? Well, Hugh wants to know what the box even is, and why should we think outside or inside or anywhere near it? When you enter the world of Hugh A. D. Spencer, there is no box. There is no owl. There is no cat. There is no outside—or inside. Get ready.
