Eric Myers ☆ 7 Summary

Ales and his third book was rejected by nineteen publishers before being accepted at a relatively small house But Auntie Mame became a phenomena spending two years on the bestseller lists adapting into a successful play movie and later a musical As a result of this and later successes Tanner made millions and became the toast of a certain bohemian segment of Manhattan arts society He also spent every cent he ever made Torn between his wife and family and his own awakening realization of his homosexuality he separated from his. Like the Lucille Ball movie version of Mame this book is a dull lifeless flop that contains all the proper parts but no imagination or style It s just the facts with very little details about some aspects of Patrick Dennis s life and also very little about Mame If you want to read a book about the musical stage or movie versions of Mame this isn t in they only get a couple sentences The original Auntie Mame stage production does get a bit but it only makes up a small part of this book Instead there is a lot about books none of us have ever read or heard of some going into ridiculous detailReaders are given access to whomever the author could find that was still alive with sketchy details of what could have been interesting stories But the way they re told here anything interesting just dies Even Patrick Dennis s homosexual years are glossed over with almost no details Nothing here is that compelling or noteworthy other than the fact that Dennis didn t write the endings to almost all of his books which is bizarre The whole book takes itself way too seriously with little of the humor the writer claims Dennis hadIf you are a Mame fan skip this it s not worth it Watching Lucille Ball instead will at least give you a good laugh
