Memoirs of a mangy lover, by Groucho Marx
In Memoirs of a Mangy Lover Groucho turns his manic eyebrows and spirited cigar to the ever-perplexing affairs of the heart while fully addressing the Marxian passion for poker. This wacky, eclectic book includes Groucho's improbable tales of true romance; his irreverent observations on talent, luck, and what this country really needs; the battles with pigeons and hotel detectives; an account of a blind date who knew a comedy when she saw it (even if it was Death of a Salesman); the "reason" for Harpo's silence; Groucho's unnatural history of love, which traces its unruly evolution from amoeba to alimony; his view on polygamy (and how to attain it); the stunning parallels between Groucho and Lawrence of Arabia; and, of course, plenty of blondes, brunettes, and redheads. So why buy a duck, when instead you can own the Memoirs of a Mangy Lover?
