Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade

Author : Patrick Dennis


Wildly successful when it was first published in 1955, Patrick Dennis’ Auntie Mame sold over two million copies and stayed put on the New York Times bestseller list for 112 weeks. It was made into a play, a Broadway as well as a Hollywood musical, and a fabulous movie starring Rosalind Russell. Since then, Mame has taken her rightful place in the pantheon of Great and Important People as the world’s most beloved, madcap, devastatingly sophisticated, and glamorous aunt. She is impossible to resist, and this hilarious story of an orphaned ten-year-old boy sent to live with his aunt is as delicious a read in the twenty-first century as it was in the 1950s.

Finally back in print after 15 years–the classic comic bestseller about a wild, witty, and irresistible New York flapper. Here are the extravagant follies and delirious escapades of a grand dame with a heart of gold, as seen through the wide eyes of her young nephew.
