Description by OLDIES.com:

"This is a riotous story which is reasonably mad and as accurate as a Marx brother can make it. Despite only a year and a half of schooling, Harpo, or perhaps his collaborator, is the best writer of the Marx Brother. Highly recommended." -Library Journal

"A funny, affectionate and unpretentious autobiography done with a sharply professional assist from Rowland Barber." -New York Times Book Review

Rating 5.0 An indepth and funny account by a silent clown Customer: from VESTAL, NY US -- August, 17, 2013

Harpo Speaks is a snapshot into the past of classic Hollywood. It's a funny, racy, wonderful account of the world's greatest comedy team seen through the eyes of a pantomime genius. Learn what a Gookie is and how it came to be. Sit at the Algonquin Roundtable and listen in on the greats of literature and theater being naughty and bitchy and Harpo absorbing it all. Play an absorbing game of "murder" and find a victim slumped on the toilet and a very incriminating clue written on the toilet paper. See Harpo act as a spy in Communist Russia! Play Pinchy Winchy! This is a must read for any fan of the Marx Brothers and a Hollywood that is no more.
