Memoirs Of A Mangy Lover by Groucho Marx
FIRST PAPERBACK PRINTING  MANOR BOOKS
Vintage paperback in excellent condition. Tightly bound and seemingly unread copy. Some light edge wear to cover and tanning.
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; his 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 ?
