The Groucho Letters: Letters from and to Groucho Marx

The Groucho Letters: Letters from and to Groucho Marx Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Donated to the Library of Congress in the mid-1960s, Groucho Marx's correspondence was first crafted into this celebration of wit and wisdom in 1967. Reissued today with his original letters and humor intact, The Groucho Letters exposes one of the twentieth century's most beloved comedian's private insights into show biz, politics, business, and, of course, his illustrious personal life. Included are Marx's conversations with such noted personalities as E.B. White, Fred Allen, Goodman Ace, Nunnally Johnson, James Thurber, Booth Tarkington, Alistair Cooke, Harry Truman, Irving Berlin, and S. J. Perelman.

Review:

"Written... with the impudence, irreverence and general lunacy that made Groucho the immortal wise guy of the American screen." Newsweek

Review:

"These letters are good reading, for out of the book Groucho emerges, eyebrows bounding, eyes rolling, cigar jauntily clamped between his teeth, the wisecracks coming a mile a minute. Even Calvin Coolidge might have smiled." Book Week
