Summary
Retired bank manager George Pearmain is, apparently, dead. According to the behaviour of everyone around him, it would seem that he is no more. Not only that, but his mother has also passed away too - andon the eve of her 99th year poor dear. Not only that, it could be that they were both murdered. Apart from that, he feels fine. As George's family gather for the 99th birthday celebration that never was, he hovers around the house, watching and listening, entirely unseen. As a result, he makes all sorts of discoveries about himself, his wife Esmerelda and his supposedly happy family ...R.I.P. is a sublime comedy told from beyond the grave. Screamingly funny and strange, it asks the question: What if you could bear witness to your own demise? How would your nearest and dearest react? True to form, Williams once again delivers a comic masterpiece; this time floating beyond suburbia into a spirit world that will touch readers of all generations
