Around the World with Auntie Mame

Finished Around the World with Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis yesterday. I found it much more enjoyable than the first book, Auntie Mame. I think that's because I saw the film version with Rosalind Russell so many times that it spoiled all the gags in the book. The second was completely unknown to me, so that made it very fun. There were quite a few laugh-out-loud moments. Dennis dedicated the second book to Russell. I thought that was interesting. I guess he felt she really captured the character.
