Auntie Mame : An Irreverent Escapade - 01 edition

Auntie Mame : An Irreverent Escapade (ISBN10: 0767908198; ISBN13: 9780767908191)
ISBN13: 978-0767908191
ISBN10: 0767908198

Summary: After inspiring two movies, a Broadway musical, and a successful sequel, author Patrick Dennis' singular character has become one of the world's most outrageous icons. In the wake of an acclaimed biography of the eccentric Dennis (Uncle Mame, October 2000) and as retro-chic rages on, this edition, complete with a new introduction by Paul Rudnick, is now available.

Even more risque than the envelope-pushing film starring Rosalind Russell, this story of an or
phaned ten-year-old boy sent to live with his glamorous aunt is as resonating today as it was in the 50's. When Patrick, our young orphan, is sent to an all-nude elementary school in bohemian Greenwich Village, and plays nursemaid to the perpetually soused characters who pass out in his aunt's house, he receives the kind of education most kids would die for. And 'supervising' him the whole time is Auntie Mame herself, in all her captivating and flamboyant glory.

Camp culture abounds these days, from the sloshed starring duo of Absolutely Fabulous to the entire cast of Will and Grace - Auntie Mame is the story of the original 'queen of quirk'.
