It makes sense that Groucho, master of the wise crack, a man who kept company with S.J. Perelman
and George S. Kaufman
, should be a wonderful author in his own right, but you won't know how wonderful unless you have this book. Its editor, Robert S. Bader, has collected the funniest essays, columns and letters that Groucho composed during his long career. Writing with a wit and love of non-sequitur that influenced the young Woody Allen
, Groucho also displays real warmth of character in these short pieces, an abiding love of family and of living.
"A Groucho discovery. . .A valuable and very funny compendium." -- Leonard Maltin, Entertainment Tonight
"You can never get too much Groucho, and this book heartily feeds that appetite." --Dick Cavett
