A few weeks ago I read an excerpt from a novel. Unfortunately, I've lost track of the title and author. Even more unfortunately, I can't get the premise out of my head.

The plot points I can remember are that the main character borrowed a homeless person's "invisibility," but it will revert to her at dawn. He uses it to go into a pain ward in a hospital and extracts the pain from patients there. He takes the pain things back to his home and does something with them. I can't remember anything else.

Any takers? Does anyone know what this novel is?

Updated: Found it! Bad Magic by Stephan Zielinski. I still can't remember who pointed it out to me.
