Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade (Penguin Modern Classics)
1 journaler for this copy...
I fell in love with Auntie Mame via the Lucille Ball movie as a child. I didn't realise then that I would grow to be a somewhat flamboyant red headed Aunty myself but something resonnated on some level for sure. It had never occurred to me to seek out the book before and I had no clue it was out of print for a time but when I learned that it was being reprinted in the UK, I simply had to order it. Can't wait to read it.

I have to say, I much prefer the Mame in the book now to the televised Mame of my childhood. Lucille Ball seemingly managed to remove any of the darker more socio political edges off Auntie Mame while making her more 'madcap'. I really enjoyed this romp through the issues of the time in which it was set and was incredibly surprised by the later college chapters.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Left in the childrens/family area of the festival. I had ventured over to score some free Rowse honey. I hope whoever finds this book enjoyed their festival time and loves the book as much as I did.
