Product description

Synopsis

'No, Groucho is not my real name, I'm just breaking it in for a friend'. Presenting the greatest and most hilarious examples of Groucho, one of the most influential and well-loved figures in the long and glittering history of comedy. From early scripts to complete screenplays, from magazine funnies to fascinating personal correspondence, via books, greedy banks, even greedier lawyers and the coming of television, Kanfer's collection captures the essence of Groucho's inimitable comic genius. 'I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception'.

About the Author

Stefan Kanfer is the author of a number of acclaimed books, including one on the history of animation, and a journalist writing for Time and The New York Times Book Review.
