The listener with happy childhood memories of both the well-known film (starring Cary Grant) and the early TV show will enjoy hearing the original story of Topper, a man whose world is thrown into confusion by two frivolous, high-society ghosts. Barrett Whitener successfully brings the varied characters to life, from petulant and whiny Topper, to sophisticated Marion. And his George Kerby perfectly fits my image of this debonair and charming character. The supporting characters are well drawn; they include stereotypical police, a self-important judge, and the long suffering Mrs. Topper. Whitener carefully paints the desolate landscape of Topper's life, while hinting at the sensuality of Marion, and the sexual tension between the two. This is a delightful, thought-provoking read.
