Read an Excerpt

In 1955, Auntie Mame spent 112 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, but that was only her first act. Three years later, thousands of fans celebrated her reappearance in a novel of international hijinks.
Narrated once again by Mame’s fictional deadpan nephew, Around the World with Auntie Mame takes readers on a first-rate if not always first-class voyage to intriguing locales around the world—including Paris, London, and Lebanon. Setting sail aboard the Normandie, Mame soon finds herself pursued by Interpol and rescued from seminudity by a pack of Irish wolfhounds. Next, Mame’s antics lead her to a gunrunning ship on the eve of World War II, causing luxury accommodations to be forfeited for the sake of action. But not to worry—she doesn’t rough it for long. If you thought her Manhattan parties were superb, you’ll want to put yourself on the guest list for her splashy Venice bash featured in this equally tipsy and titillating romp.
Also included is an account of Mame’s stopover at the “Mother Bloor Communal Farm” in rural Russia, an irreverently comic chapter suppressed when the book was first published at the height of the Red Scare.
New acquaintances and lifelong fans of Auntie Mame will all relish this second round of even more outrageous escapades with the world’s most glamorous globetrotter.

    Don't Miss These Travels With Everybody's Favorite Aunt!

    BUT OF COURSE there was a sequel! No need to wonder what bestselling travel book of 1958/59 was! Back with us again is the ultimate guide to REALLY travelling in style: MAME-style! Forget Fodors and Frommers - there's nothing like AROUND THE WORLD WITH AUNTIE MAME to be found in your local bookstore's Travel section! Mame Dennis' adventures as she tours the world with her nephew Patrick are almost as much fun as her original chronicles in AUNTIE MAME. Among other things, she out-dazzles the City of Light itself at the Follies Bergere, mixes hilariously in London 'society', saves her best friend, tipsy actress Vera Charles (who had 'more changes of costume than facial expression,' according to one critic to whom she never spoke again) from a disastrous near-marriage, exposes some neo-nazis, and even helps ease some tensions in the Middle East. If the freshness of the original is somewhat lacking here, well, that's almost inevitable with a sequel, but this still ranks as one of Patrick Dennis's funniest efforts. How delightful that this wonderful character and her creator are both being rediscovered, for we need Auntie Mame's zest for life and a good laugh just as much today as we did in the 1950s. Fans of the film won't be surprised that he dedicated this book 'To the One and Only Rosalind Russell' - the actress had already brought his Auntie Mame vividly to life in one of the theatre's biggest comedy hits of the 1950s and was about to make movie history in the glittering screen adaptation released after this book's original 1958 publication.

    Stupendous Dahlling!!

    I was at my grandma's house and she told me I should read this book. I was a bit skeptical at first because it looked like a bit much. But after the first chapter, I was excitedly hooked. I loved reading about Mame's adventures from Paris to a 'grand' Greek yacht. It was marvelously glittering with detail and humour. It makes you want to jump right in and be a part of it.
