Description
"Edward Everett Tanner III, under his pseudonyms of Patrick Dennis and Virginia Rowans, was the author of sixteen novels - most of them bestsellers - including the classics Little Me and Genius. But despite the success of his other works, he is by far best known and best remembered for his most indelible creation, Auntie Mame." "Based on extensive interviews with colleagues, friends, and relatives, Uncle Mame is a revealing, appealing portrait of a great American character. Easily the counterpart of such revered wits as P. G. Wodehouse and Evelyn Waugh, Dennis is not only the man who brought camp to the American mainstream but also the writer who lived a life as wild, poignant, madcap, and intriguing as any of his own books."--BOOK JACKET.
