5.0 out of 5 stars Harpo is truly an earth-angel., 3 Dec 2002
This review is from: Harpo Speaks! (Paperback)
I picked this book up a few years ago because I had been watching some of the classic Marx Bros films and wanted to know more about them. Little did I know what a love affair I was embarking on. This book is telling, funny, honest...I literally couldn't put it down. It made me cry and (more often) it made me laugh out loud - what more can you ask for? Harpo's vivid, wise and at the same time naive eye reveals the tale of his life in such a way that at the end I felt like I had just read the autobiography of an impish angel who had come to earth just to give it a whirl and maybe stir a few things up. Absolutely inspiring to the last, Harpo was not only incredibly funny, but also incredibly beautiful. Words really can't describe how I felt about this book. Read it and you'll know what I mean.

WOW. You just described word-for-word my experience reading this. I only began reading as I'd been watching them alot and as you say wanted to know more, my Dad had a copy as he's a big fan - and I absolutely fell in love with everything about it.
He really was just such an amazing and beautiful person, so much that it makes me happy even thinking about it. :)
