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. Around the World with Auntie Mame takes readers on a first.rate (if not always ...
first-class) voyage to fabulous and exotic locales around the world - including Paris, London, the Austrian Alps, and Lebanon - with Mame herself as a devilishly fun guide. From piloting a gunrunning ship on the eve of World War II to being rescued from public nudity on the stage of the Folies-Bergères by a pack Irish wolfhounds, Mame never loses her sense of adventure - or her sense of style. Along for the ride are her nephew Patrick and her best friend, the legendary actress and lush Vera Charles, plus a motley crew of eccentrics, expatriates, and playboys. Also included is an account of Mame's stopover at the "Mother Bloor Communal Farm" in rural Russia, a fiendishly satirical chapter suppressed when the book was first published at the height of the 1950s Red Scare. Deliciously witty, blissfully irreverent, and wildly funny, Around the World with Auntie Mame remains as irresistible now as when it was first published in 1958.
Forse meno brillante rispetto a Zia Mame, ma importa relativamente, perchè fare un viaggio intorno all'Europa (e non solo) in compagnia di quella pazza di Mame è una di quelle occasioni da non perdere!
One of those rare cases in which the sequel is better than the previous.Auntie Mame didn't convince me at the beginning for her snobbish, unprobable, far-fetched adventures, but in this book I discovered an intelligent woman with a great
..."great culture. Really funny her adventures around the world from where she eventually comes home full of memorabilia: not only pictoresque stuff, but she also gathers a really cosmopolitan crowd (even though sometimes too stereotyped). For once a witty, intelligent humorism (enogh of chick-lit!).
