doc ç ☆ Harpo Marx

This is a riotous story which is reasonably mad and as accurate as a Marx brother can make it Despite only a year and a half of This is my desert island book I often pull it out when I'm feeling blue In fact I think I loaned out my current copy to a friend Time to buy another copy my third This time I'll get one for me and one for loaning The stories in this book are often difficult as his tour to Russia in WWII speaks volumes but they are also uplifting as in the household rules his family made for each other All his kids were adopted and their favorite bedtime story was about how their parents Harpo and Susan found each child as their family grewMost beautiful were the friendships he made and the incredible people he was around He repeats that he was amazed to be with such people and suspected that it was because in a group of egotistical artists he was the listener I suspect he lent much to the genius of every circle he joinedI would give anything to belong to an Algonuin Round Table such as theirs and spend my time playing crouet on NY rooftops or Murder on Neshobe Island Anyone who values language would have loved these people some of whom would have commited suicide to see the texting vernacular some are using now in everyday languageNo I won't make this a rant You just have to read it Go forth and giggle

reader Harpo Speaks

Harpo SpeaksFectionate and unpretentious autobiography done with a sharply professional assist from Rowland Barber New York Times Book Revie What to say I think for a man who never spoke on stage or in the movies during his career sure has a lot to say in his autobiography This probably will be the best book I well read this year or maybe in many years to come It sure beats any book I have read in a long time This story being if its real or not since this is coming from a Marx brother it sure is an amazing story It grips you in from the very beginning with an 8 year old boy being thrown out of his second grade classroom window every day until he just decides to give up on school Through his childhood in New York during the 1890's and 1900's doing all kinds of crazy jobs so he could have money for his family to eat Until his mother grabs him one day out of one of these crazy jobs and puts him on the stage with his two brothers And then continues on with crazy and at times hilarious stories about vaudeville Broadway and The Algonuin Round Table in the 1920's This is just part of the story There still are a lot that happens later in Harpo's life that is just as amazing and at times hard to believe But even if the stories here are real or not or maybe a mix of real and fiction This was still one of the best books I have read for a very long time
