‘A sort of American PG Wodehouse…fuelled by the supernatural, and lashings of alcohol and innuendo!

James Thorne Smith (1892-1934) was a comic American writer of fantasy best known today for his Topper novels ’The Jovial Ghosts’ (filmed with Cary Grant as ‘Mr Topper’) and ‘Topper Takes A trip’. His books commonly involve sex, alcohol and supernatural transformations. They are also richly funny in plot and use/misuse of the English language. If you’ve never discovered him before then now’s the time…and there are ten titles in all!
