Editions for Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilization: Backstage With Barry Humphries: (Paperback published in ),

    Lahr (Automatic Vaudeville, , etc.), in British tonalities never learned from his father, offers an overwrought backstage bio of a comedian largely unappreciated this side of the Pond. Self-proclaimed mega-star Dame Edna Everage (My Gorgeous Life, ) is a confidante of royals and a hobnobber with international glitterati. Surely, there's nothing like this Dame, with her contempt for her. Also of note are Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilization by John Lahr, and Handling Edna by Barry Humphries; a scathing account of the personal and professional interactions between himself and his only client. Dame Edna is currently in litigation to stop the circulation of this book.
