The temptation to write about yourself is irresistible, especially when you are prodded 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.

About the Author:

Julius Henry "Groucho" Marx, was an American comedian and film star. He made 15 feature films with his siblings, the Marx Brothers, and also had a successful solo career, most notably as the host of the radio and television game show, You Bet Your Life.

From Library Journal:

The one, the only Groucho here offers his own life story, which, of course, includes his famous brothers (LJ 10/15/58). Though filled with laughs throughout, the book reveals the struggle of the Marxes to break from the poverty of New York's East Side to achieve success and stardom. A good companion to last year's reprint of The Groucho Letters (Classic Returns, LJ
