Topper escapes from his humdrum life and wife , spends most of his time excessively drunk, getting into trouble and hanging around with a lot of dead people - and Oscar the dog.
I do vaguely remember the film with Cary Grant and I can just imagine the special effects being created for this - such as when Oscar can only back half appears.
Think the book would best be described as "screwball" which is a type of book - and film - which has fallen out of fashion, especially in early 21st century England. We like our humour different now I think. Whilst mildly amusing, this is not the funniest book I've read.
