Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The one and only Groucho turned his razor wit to the subject of love as well as remembrances of his brothers and some general "Marxist" philosophy in this 1963 volume. Groucho's observations are buttressed with illustrations by Leo Hershfield. You can never go wrong with Groucho.
