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.
