Imagine, for a moment, that you live in a nice quiet little middle-class street policed by the local volunteer neighbourhood watch. All the gardens are tidy and well-kept. The neighbours know one other, and nothing much ever happens here. And then imagine that a madwoman moves in next door.
Ok, now switch scenarios and imagine yourself as that madwoman, and that youâ€™ve moved into that nice little neighbourhood. Youâ€™ve not only moved there, but you want to belong, you want to mingle, you want to make friendsâ€¦.
