Harpo Speaks! book by Harpo Marx
Harpo Marx is the best-known harpist in history. In this autobiography, written in 1961 with the help of Rowland Barber, Harpo takes us on a riotous journey through his life, from the early days in New York playing the piano in a brothel, through the rise of the Marx Brothers from Vaudeville to Broadway and Hollywood, to his retirement with his wife in California. This is a funny and fascinating success story of a family of brothers, and of a boy with less than 2 years of formal schooling who became friendly with many of the luminaries of the theater and literary world. 482 pages, paperbound.
