Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
(Applause Books). Bill Marx is the last living person to have worked professionally with the three Marx Brothers, his uncles Chico and Groucho and his father, Harpo Marx. Because Chico and Groucho had siblings that had written about them, Bill Marx wanted to complete the Marx Brothers' literary trifecta by authoring a book about the personal and professional relationships that he had with his father. Son of Harpo Speaks!, in addition to offering a unique perspective of a very special man and revealing many stories never before in print, is also a book about a "too-Hollywood-to-believe" life-altering quirk of fate that ultimately brought him together with his parents. The background for this remarkable revelation unfolded unassumingly over a glass of wine and some conversation in the famous 1960s nightclub, Dino's Lodge, on Hollywood's Sunset Strip. It would subsequently lead the author to explore the complex life task of dealing with his emotional scars of rejection and the secure feelings of acceptance, the latter due to his overwhelmingly good fortune of having been adopted by two loving parents. Plenty of "show-biz" and "sizzle" are also sprinkled throughout to make for a very enjoyable read.

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.
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"
