In Memoirs of a Mangy Lover Groucho turns his manic eyebrows and spirited cigar to the ever-perplexing affairs of the heart while fully addressing the Marxian passion for poker. This wacky, eclectic book includes Groucho's improbable tales of true romance; his irreverent observations on talent, luck, and what this country really needs; the battles with pigeons and hotel detectives; an account of a blind date who knew a comedy when she saw it (even if it was Death of a Salesman); the "reason" for Harpo's silence; Groucho's unnatural history of love, which traces its unruly evolution from amoeba to alimony; his view on polygamy (and how to attain it); the stunning parallels between Groucho and Lawrence of Arabia; and, of course, plenty of blondes, brunettes, and redheads. So why buy a duck, when instead you can own the Memoirs of a Mangy Lover?

As a member of the Marx Brothers, Julius (1895–1977), a.k.a. Groucho, enjoyed a sensational career on Broadway and in Hollywood with such comedy classics as Animal Crackers, Duck Soup, and A Night at the Opera. His solo career included work as a film actor, television game show emcee, and author of Groucho & Me, his autobiography.From Library Journal:
The one and only Groucho turned his razor wit to the subject of love as well as remembrances of his brothers and some general "Marxist" philosophy in this 1963 volume. Groucho's observations are buttressed with illustrations by Leo Hershfield. You can never go wrong with Groucho.
