    This is one of my favourites. I like to imagine what his cellmate is thinking…
    It reminds me of Manuel Puig’s ‘Kiss of the Spider Woman.’

    I am glad you like it.

    This got an “also read” in the write-invite competition: the lowest category of all.

    I think the inspiration for this came partly from ‘The Man Who Liked Dickens’, a short story by Evelyn Waugh which, as well as being published on its own, is also a chapter from his novel ‘A Handful of Dust’.
