(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.
