A Character in Reality

One of the narrator’s fictional characters, Detective Gladstone, has gained consciousness and stepped out of a novel into reality.  He gradually adjusts to the real world with the narrator’s help, picking up insights along the way about what it means to be human.  But an anti-illegal immigrant group does not want him in reality, and he must face down its leader to self-actualize as a real person.
