    Patrick Dennis actually wrote several books, but "Auntie Mame" is by far the most famous today. This is the same narrator, but is a more a series of episodes than the first book. While the humor is quite similar, you can see some differences. If you enjoyed the first, Auntie Mame book, this book is /5(). Eric Myers has written three books (UNCLE MAME, SCREEN DECO, and FORTIES SCREEN STYLE, all published by St. Martin's Press) and worked as a publicist on numerous feature films.

      Uncle Mame: The Life of Patrick Dennis * By Eric Myers * St. Martin's Press * $ Eric Myers's new biography of American author Patrick Dennis, born Edward Everett Tanner Ill (), is exciting news, only because it rescues from oblivion one of the great comic writers of the century (I would rate him right up there with Noel Coward) but also because it has an amazing story to tell.   There's an excellent biography of his life, Uncle Mame: The Life of Patrick Dennis,, by Eric Myers. Dennis had a genius for writing gay camp, and passing off onto unsuspecting Scarsdale matrons. There are many gay characters in his books -Though often they are con men who take advantage of wealthy men. Try reading Genius, or Tony, or Paradise.

    Based on extensive interviews with co-workers, 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 he also lived a life as wild, poignant.

Back to Uncle Mame. The author did a great job and this book is timeless, and while totally fiction, placed in a time in America that actually occurred. When Patrick Dennis wrote his book, attitudes were very different and people were not aware of identity problems.

The only people who noticed were those who had perhaps a problem personally/5(60). 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!/5.

Based on extensive interviews with coworkers, friends, and relatives, Uncle Mame is a revealing, intimate portrait of the man who brought camp to the American mainstream and even in his lowest moments personified—even in his lowest moments— the glamour and wit he captured on the page.
