For everyone who still can't get enough of this legendary wit (and excellent writer), here is an extraordinary collection of almost two hundred letters by Groucho Marx. Following a close filial relationship as it unfolds week by week, year by year, these letters move through three decades of life: from the vagaries of Groucho's career in film, radio, and television, through two divorces and two remarriages, to Miriam's own often tumultuous young adulthood. In his own inimitable fashion, Groucho advises his daughter about her schoolwork, writing, career, growing up, and growing old. He also discusses theater, film, books, and politics with a candor that will surprise and delight even his most knowledgeable fans. Accompanied by photographs from Miriam's personal albums, Love, Groucho reveals a man deeply concerned with his family, a sometimes firm, always loving father who never hesitated to say exactly what he thought.

About the Author:

Miriam Marx Allen was born in New York in 1927. She grew up in Beverly Hills and now lives in San Clemente, California.

From AudioFile:

The famed Groucho Marx's daughter Miriam Marx Allen saved virtually every letter her father wrote to her between 1938 and 1967. The letters reveal a caring, level-headed family man constantly worried about money and career. Frank Ferrante as Groucho is outstanding, warm and witty. The problem with this audio presentation lies in the dull parade of uninterest-ing letters and equally dull anecdotes by Miriam Marx Allen. After a while, one truly stops caring about the problems of this father and daughter. This is a shame because boring is something Groucho Marx never ever was. M.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
