The main story is encased in a “frame” narrative, in which Patrick, now grown and married, tries to placate his wife with highly edited tales from his travels with his aunt. This takes up where the original novel, Auntie Mame, left off, with Patrick’s son Michael going off to India with Mame promising to have him home by Labour Day. Two years have passed, with no word beyond a few random postcards. Each chapter begins with Patrick’s reassuring, off-hand comments about his journeys with Mame, and then continues with him narrating what really happened.
