Description - Uncle Mame by Eric Myers

Now in paperback: The first biography of the novelist who "had more aliases than a con man" (New York Times) and lived a life as flamboyant as his creation, Auntie Mame. Under his pseudonyms of Patrick Dennis and Virginia Rowans, Edward Everett (Pat) Tanner III was the author of sixteen novelsmost of them best sellersincluding the now-classic Little Me and Auntie Mame . Tanner made millions, became the toast of Manhattan society, and had his works adapted into wildly successful plays, musicals, TV shows, and films. But he also spent every cent he made, worked incognito as a butler to the wealthy, and constructed a persona so elaborate that not even his wife and children ever quite knew the real Pat. 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 personifiedeven in his lowest moments the glamour and wit he captured on the page.
