Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Not Karl Marx and Vladimir Ilyich Lenin-Groucho Marx and John Lennon! In this small volume, Green (Joey Green's Amazing Kitchen Cures) collects some 400 (mostly) humorous quotes from the pair and juxtaposes them on each page. Some of the juxtapositions are thematic-e.g., women, money, cats-while others are just serendipitous turns of phrase. Some are surreal; others prosaic. And though these two artists didn't actually have much in common, their quotes are beautifully paralleled here (e.g., Marx's "One for all and all for me and me for you and three for five and six for a quarter" is juxtaposed with Lennon's "I am me as you are he as you are me and we are all together"). Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, has written the foreword while Marx's son, Arthur, has contributed the introduction. This is an interesting and inexpensive gift book for bathroom readers, quote-lovers, or fans of either one of these two men; otherwise, an optional purchase for the humor section of public libraries.-Terren Ilana Wein, Univ. of Chicago Divinity Sch.
