Publisher's Summary

"Gracie and I were perfect for radio. Both of us could stand still in front of a microphone and read out loud. Gracie had a terrific voice, and I had Gracie. And that's all it took."
—George Burns
In the spring of 1947, Gracie turned her eye toward things that are fresh and new: a new hat, a new hemline, and a new home. The real-estate wrangling of Beverly Hills' most brilliantly befuddled wife finds the Burnses bunking with various members of the cast, occupying a janitor's apartment, and even living seperately at the YMCA/YWCA. All's well that ends well...but until then, it's hilarious!
First-rate supporting players fan the flames of the mirthful misfortune, including Bill Goodwin, Elvia Allman, Hans Conried, Mel Blanc, Elliott Lewis, Verna Felton, Bea Benaderet, and more.
