Globe Trecking

Around the World with Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis is a delightful continuation of the earlier, more widely known book, Auntie Mame.  This book begins with Patrick and his wife wondering what has become of Auntie Mame and their son who have been on a “short” trip of their own for over two years.  In this story, Patrick recounts a long overseas vacation taken with his irrepressible Auntie Mame during the summer prior to his entrance to college.  The cast of international characters and Auntie Mame’s antics are comical.  I enjoyed this book almost as much as the original and still wish I’d known Mame personally.  Her joie de vivre is enviable!
