The books of Patrick Dennis were practically required reading in our home. I vividly remember laughing out loud while reading 'A Joyous Season,' one of the many Patrick Dennis novels that my mother devoured as a teenager and later encouraged her children to read.

This was a very interesting look into the life of the author who gave us Auntie Mame. Why someone has not adapted his life into a screenplay is beyond me! I will definitely be reading more of his novels.

This book was really just okay. A lot of details about a rather typical old school artistic gay life. If it was 150 pages shorter... I would have enjoyed it more.
