Publisher's Summary

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 as well as 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 listen in the twenty-first century as it was in the 1950s.

a marvelous a masterful piece .

this is a brilliantly written piece which simultaneously is unbelievably and up were asleep politically correct and laughingly incorrect. Auntie Mame is the most refreshingly wonderful loving brilliant articulate woman who still sees the world as a place to be explored and who Marvel's in her own unique way and its wonders. she is epitomized by one of her own lines which says " darling life is a banquet but most sons of a b****** are starving " this is also the most brilliant reading of any audible book to which I have ever listened with perhaps the exception of the Gamache series.

Still one of my favorites!

I've always loved this book; it was tradition in our family to read it and "The Joyous Season" aloud at Christmas. Not only was it great to hear the story again, Christopher Lane's narration brought an extra element of character and narration that made the whole thing better.
