Living Arrangements is a new short story by Alistair Morgan about a woman who discovers an uninvited guest in her home. The author was inspired by two incidents. The first was "a news story about a man in Japan who discovered a woman secretly living in his apartment. He found her by setting up cameras after noticing his food was disappearing. The second was last year’s outbreak of violence in South Africa. Immigrants from neighbouring countries were attacked and killed after being accused of stealing local jobs."
