"With Love, Groucho almost 200 letters by the legendary Groucho Marx are published for the first time. Miriam Marx Allen, Groucho's elder daughter, saved virtually every letter her father wrote her between 1938, when she was eleven years old, and 1967. Groucho's letters to his daughter amply display his famous wit and word play, but they also provide a rare glimpse of the very human and complex man behind the moustache.
Here is an extraordinary father-daughter relationship which unfolds week by week, year by year, weathering the ups and downs of Groucho's film, radio and television careers, two divorces and two remarriages and Miriam's often tumultuous young adulthood."
