Read this: Katherine Anne Porter, fabulist lady of letters
Katherine Anne Porter -- now there was a piece of work. The mid-century literary grande dame was notorious for cooking up imaginary love affairs with oblivious friends -- one of them the hotshot D.C. lawyer E. Barrett Prettyman Jr. (He was half her age at the time.)
