No personage is too big, no nuance too small, no subject too far out for Grouchos spontaneous, hilarious, and ferocious typewriter. He writes to comics, corporations, children, presidents, and even his daughters boyfriend. Here is Groucho swapping photos with T. S. Eliot (I had no idea you were so handsome!); advising his son on courting a rich dame (Dont come out bluntly and say, How much dough have you got? That wouldnt be the Marxian way); crisply declining membership in a Hollywood club (I dont care to belong to any social organization that will accept me as a member); reacting with utmost composure when informed that he has been made into a verb by James Joyce (Theres no reason why I shouldnt appear in Finnegans Wake. Im certainly as bewildered about life as Joyce was); responding to a scandal sheet (Gentleman: If you continue to publish slanderous pieces about me, I shall feel compelled to cancel my subscription); describing himself to the Lunts (I eat like a vulture. Unfortunately the resemblance doesnt end there); and much, much more. That mobile visage, that look of wild amazement, and that weaving cigar are wholly captured, bound but untamed, in The Groucho Letters.
