"The Walker-Through Walls." Marcel Ayme.

Review: A man discovers he can walk through walls. Then he discovers he can make all sorts of mischief by doing so. He bedevils the police when they try to constrain him in jail cells and even the governor. One day he discovers a beautiful blonde who is being held captive for love. He penetrates the walls of her captivity for two glorious nights of love. On his return the second night of his enchanting relationship, he encounters resistance in the walls and can not make it through the final wall where he is entombed to this day.
