I wasn't quite sure how to word this question as can be seen by the garbled title. I am writing in close third person. There are certain conversations between other characters which they would not necessarily be party to, but are important to the plot. I don't particularly want my main character to be hiding in the room while these happen (or watch on a security feed) because this just strikes me as a bit of a crap solution. I also don't want this character to be the type that is just ignored by everyone, like a fly on the wall at every important event, with other character's having inappropriate conversations in front of them. Any ideas?
