Book Description

A UNIQUE RAGS TO RICHES TALE FROM THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS OF THE MARX BROTHERS --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

'The temptation to write about yourself is irresistible, especially when you are prodded into it by a crafty publisher into it by a crafty publisher who has slyly baited you into doing it with a miserly advance of fifty dollars and a box of cheap cigars ...' - Groucho Marx
told with humour and wit and in Groucho's own unique style, Groucho & Me : The Autobiography is a rags to riches story with a difference. Son of a Yorkville tailor and his wife, the most outrageous and voluble of the legendary Marx Brothers had a career that stretched from Vaudeville to gameshow, conquering Hollywood on the way. From the triumphs and disasters of a life spent in show business, to his unconsummated loves and self-proclaimed yearning for the young. As TS Eliot said of him: 'the mind boggles.'
'The only thing the man can't do is sing, and that gave me an opening. But he can do everything else. I envy him this book, most of his wives and all of his talent' - Frank Sinatra
'In this book, Groucho gives all - and he deserves every dime of his royalties. I'm looking for my percentage for this puff' - Jack Benny
'Groucho brought the spirit of of carnival to Hollywood. This book allows us to linger over the gags that went too fast on the screen' - Alistair Cooke --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
