The Posthumous Adventures of Harry Whittaker
The first task is caring.
Only then comes letting go.
Harry, much loved star of stage and screen, lies dead of a heart attack. To his surprise he is still here in spirit, though scarily trapped in a bureaucratic afterlife. Meanwhile, as a wealth of tributes engulfs the media, his unacknowledged son, Richard, is determined to step free of his father’s long shadow.
