This is definitely a window into the intimate world of one of the most funny human beings that ever lived. It's great to see how almost every correspondence from Groucho comes from a place of bemused, vaudevillian irreverence that only someone like Groucho could pull off. I wish we could read letters that the Marx Brothers wrote to each other, but as the excellent introduction states, they were rarely apart from each other long enough to write letters. I particularly enjoyed Groucho's letters to his kids (specifically Arthur, Miriam & Melinda) and in one case, a hilarious letter to one of his daughter's boyfriends. I have to admit I was a bit bored with a lot of the more show business letters, even with Groucho's signature zingers sprinkled throughout. In the end a fun read, but probably only for the true, die-hard Groucho fans.
