  1. Oh my gosh!! I’ve never read a Patrick Dennis book when I haven’t laughed like a maniac through the whole thing. Auntie Mame is just the tip of the iceberg. Somehow I’ve missed reading this book, but will be correcting that grievous error very soon. Thanks for the reminder about this most hilarious author!
