Auntie Mame : An Irreverent Escapade Paperback
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
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.

Review by KymmAC
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.

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