Call him a cynic, call him a lout, or call him the greatest comedian of the 20th century, Julius "Groucho" Marx was also a committed and doting father. This audiobook presents three decades of correspondence between Groucho and his beloved daughter, Miriam. After a tender and wise introduction by friend and admirer Dick Cavett, the voice of Groucho is performed in a tasteful blend of mimicry and essence by Frank Ferrante, an actor specializing in all things Groucho.
Here is the great and sometimes troubled clown without his spectacles and trademark moustache. In these recordings, Groucho muses in paternal tenderness about family, heartbreak, politics, show business, and, most importantly, love. Fear not: wit abounds.
Groucho is revealed as a man deeply concerned with holding his family together and someone who never hesitated to say exactly what he thought.
