With a wit as sharp as a vodka stinger and a heart as free as her spirit, Auntie Mame burst onto the literary scene in 1955--and today remains one of the most unforgettable characters in contemporary fiction.

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 and 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.

Follow the rollicking adventures of this unflappable flapper as seen through the wide eyes of her young, impressionable nephew and discover anew or for the first time why Mame has made the world a more wonderful place.

"Outrageous, hilarious, ribald, sophisticated, slapsatiric." The Denver Post

Baker & Taylor
When young Patrick is orphaned, he goes to live with a wealthy, unpredictable aunt in New York City.

Baker
& Taylor

In the timeless story of the irrepressible Mame, the unflappable flapper is seen through the eyes of her young, impressionable nephew, scoffing at ignorance, bantering with her best friend Vera, and routinely charming the birds out of the trees. Reprint.
