Clara is a woman with enormous presence. But it's not as large as the literal presence of her lodger, Bethany Smile, who's hiding out from the immigration authorities in the attic of Clara's crumbling house in Soho. Clara's motley collection of lodgers - a rent-boy, a drag queen, a mad spiritualist and cauliflower-eared ex-boxer - all know to keep Bethany a secret, but when even the family of mice who live in the kitchen can't find any more to eat, Clara is forced to raise money by taking in a new lodger. Straight, stiff-upper-lipped, down on his luck, Mark is a banker who lost all his money in the City and is as disgusted by his new neighbours as they are by his dullness. So no one's safe...
