Teaser Imitating Katherine Walker by Alexei Sayle

When Rory’s irritating friends Byron and Danuta overstay their welcome, he invents a fictional lodger to get rid of them. But in the process of imitating Katherine Walker he gets drawn into a fantasy world which takes over his daily life. Has Rory’s invented woman become an obsession? And what happens when his friends insist on meeting her? a tale of social embarrassment, overstayed welcomes and a plan which has gone too far.
