    One thought on “Love, Groucho: Letters from Groucho Marx to His Daughter Miriam”

    1. I listened to this as a book on tape, and at the time I didn't know much about Groucho except that he was a hilarious member of the Marx Brothers. This probably wasn't the best place to begin learning about him, but it would be an excellent supplement to anyone who has a bit of prior knowledge. We hear personal recollections which aren't always positive but which give us an idea of who this man truly was, not the glossy Hollywood version.
