About This Item

Dennis, Patrick. Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade. Vanguard Press 1959 First Edition, Stated Third Printing Thus. "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!" Used. Not an exlib item. VG/G. DJ is now protected in a mylar wrap. One of the funniest books ever written, this story was also a made into a play, a film, and a musical with the incomparable Rosalind Russell and Lucille Ball. Rare/quite scarce in a dj. Some loss to top of dj spine. Please see our photos. A nice find.

Synopsis

Auntie Mame is a 1955 novel by Patrick Dennis that chronicles the madcap adventures of a boy, Patrick, growing up as the ward of his deceased father's eccentric sister, Mame Dennis. The book is a work of fiction inspired by the author's eccentric aunt, Marion Tanner, whose life and outlook in many ways mirrored those of Mame. In real life, Dennis was raised by his parents.
