Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

3 out of 5 (2 ratings)


When shy young heir Patrick is orphaned at the age of ten, the only family he has is his wealthy and eccentric aunt, a New York socialite named Mame.

Prone to dramatic costumes, flights of fancy and expensive whims, Mame will raise Patrick the only way she knows how - with humour, mishaps, unforgettable friends and lots of love.

From progressive schooling and Mame's search for a husband to her short-lived literary career and the puncturing of some of Patrick's romances, "Auntie Mame" is the most magnificent and hilarious work of love, style, wit and the life of a modern American.

An oldie but a goodie. Familiar, but amusingly lighthearted. Auntie Mame is of course entirely over the top, but endearing and uncomfortably recognizable in various possible shapes and sizes.

Review by

Enjoyed - easy to read, surprisingly modern for its period.
