There is a stream of consciousness Marx Brothers movie included in the end of the text, and I could have done without it, but for whatever reason it is there. Some of Bill's stories are so funny that I literally burst out laughing and woke up my wife in doing so. The goldfish in the clinic being one.
I the end, I have to say, I wish I knew Billy Marx more intimately as a friend, a buddy, a pal. I still have questions about Uncles Gummo and Zeppo, but I know Bill very well, just as he knows me. And we haven't yet met in person.
If you are a confirmed Marxist, and frankly, you won't be reading this unless you are, this is a necessary component of your library. Harpo would give it five honks, I gave it four. You should honk it yourself.
The only thing I wish it had more of was talking about his siblings. Both when they were younger and now that they are older. And Bill is still playing piano at places! I hope to be able to go see him. I'm so glad he wrote this book. It's just like a friend sitting and talking with you.
I was happy to have the opportunity to purchase this latest addition for my library.
Would like to have discovered more "untold stories" of the Marx Bros
and there are a few new ones in here. Suppose most have been covered before in previous books.
Bill Marx does a competent job with the Autbiogrpahy and is very grounded and honest.
Recommended for all the "fans"

His adopted son paints the a picture of growing up with a great comic genius and his extended family plus other heroes of the silent movie era. I reckon if there was more people in this world like Harpo Marx and an adopted son to tell his story the world would be a much better place.
