OK. It is possible that I am still dreaming. Can one dream-blog?

I went down to the kitchen. The window was smashed, the door open. And there was a woman – a portly, middle-aged woman in a tweed suit – asleep on the kitchen floor. Asleep. As if she’d just been creeping across the room and had been overtaken by sleep. I didn’t know what to do. She was literally just sleeping. So I got some plastic  rubbish-bag ties, and tied her to the radiator. She didn’t even wake up while I was doing that.

She had a big handbag with her, which I’ve gone through in a cursory sort of way. Her name, apparently, is Dorcas Muse. She works at the British Library. And she was carrying an enormous hammer.
