Reseña del editor
(Applause Books). Groucho Marx was a comic genius who starred on stage and in film, radio, and television. But he was also a gifted writer the author of a play, two screenplays, seven books, and over 100 articles and essays. This newly expanded collection presents the best of Groucho's short comic pieces, written over a period of more than fifty years between 1919 and 1973 for the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Saturday Evening Post, Variety, the Hollywood Reporter, and other newspapers and magazines. Here is the one and only Groucho on his family, his days in vaudeville, his career, World War II, taxes, and other topics from his love of a good cigar to his chronic insomnia, from "Why Harpo Doesn't Talk" to "The Truth About Captain Spalding." The familiar irreverence, wordplay, and a dash of self-deprecation bring Groucho's wisecracking voice to life in these pages, firmly establishing him as one of the world's great humorists. Groucho Marx and Other Short Stories and Tall Tales (a title of Groucho's own choosing) is essential reading for Marx Brothers fans, and a hilarious and nostalgic trip through the twentieth century.

Based upon Dick Cavett's recommendation in his book "Brief Encounters", I bought this, along with the book of G.S. Kaufman's writings, "By George".
While I could take or leave the latter, The Groucho Marx book is more to my taste, parts are hysterical, and much of the book contains personal anecdotes that resonate decades later.
IMHO of the two, Groucho was the more entertaining writer.
(Cavett's book wasn't bad either)
Groucho, Jack Benny, Burns & Allen, Lenny Bruce, Charles Chaplin, Jonathan Winters, Buster Keaton, W.C. Fields, Woody Allen, Jackie Gleason, Sid Ceasar, Peter Sellers... make any list you like... I believe you'll find Groucho at or near the top. Future comics and humorists, you must absorb every bit of the wisdom of all these geniuses that you possibly can. Read, enjoy and prosper!
While his claim that every page is hilarious can be attributed to Cavett's deep love and respect for Groucho, at least every item is amusing and/or interesting. You CAN hear Groucho's voice in your head as you read (assuming you're of a certain age), and it makes me wish he were still with us.
So here's the bottom line - if you were even moderate Groucho fan, you should enjoy this book. And you will certainly learn a lot about Groucho's career that preceded the time that most of us became aware of this very special man.
