A solitary and private man arrives home to find a stranger inexplicably in his house. The man is unable to discover why the stranger is there, nor his motives, yet his presence undermines the man's normal routine. In small but significant ways the stranger begins to threaten the man's sense of belonging, his territory and later his whole existence - until the man is driven to desperate lengths to rid himself of this uninvited guest. In the final chapter, the book takes a bizarre turn.

Uninvited is a claustrophobic novella, both comic and serious, with no named central character and close, even obsessive attention to detail. The book is set entirely within the confines of one man's house over a forty hour period. It is written mainly in the first person, using the third person only in the final, unexpected chapter.
