A brilliant book about a great comic talent2015年4月7日に英国でレビュー済み
I'm a huge Groucho fan and read his very funny autobiography many years ago, so when I saw this I couldn't resist buying it. I'm very glad I did. His son writes about him with such affection and warmth, and they clearly had a great relationship. It makes a change from other books by children of celebrities, who just want to vent and tell the world how horrid their parents were, and what a hard life they had. This book only made me love Groucho more and realise that whether on stage, in film or in private he remained the same funny, witty and charming man that I always thought he was. I won't spoil it for others, but I found the last few years of his life, as recounted by Arthur, to be very sad and upsetting. A must read for Marx Bros fans.

The main part of the book is essentiallya reprint of Arthur Marxs original book published in the 1950s.The remainder takes his life from the mid 50s till his sad death.Unfortunaley Groucho seemed to have little judgment when it came to suitable women.He had 3 failed marriages and the women got younger as he got older.eventually he fell into the hands of the controversial Erin Fleming.the end of his life sounds rather like a horror story.Fleming hereself ended up as a bag lady and committed suicide.A fascinating book about a unique man.

I extremely enjoyed this book! Sorry about Groucho's final years with Erin. Had to have been extremely hard on the real family with her around trying to move into Groucho's life. I have read plenty of books on the Marx Brothers and heard a movie is to be made concerning another book about Groucho and his last few years...looking forward to that!
Despite the closeness it is as informative as a date book and has a lot of stories about dinner arrangements and who sat where but not who said what. That was dissappointing. I had heard the phrase golf stories used and assumed it refered to any booring story which revealed nothing about the character, in this book however the stories are about golf. Allegedly written by his son it is flat, I suppose having Groucho looking over the script might have that effect especially if the writer is his son. I am guessing.
