Help! I’m being held hostage by Harpo Marx! 

I took his autobiography off my bookshelf the other night for a little time-filling reading before bed and I can’t put it down (even though I’ve already read it a few times).

It’s one of the best memoirs of people I’ll never get to meet (from Alexander Woollcott to Dorothy Parker to Ruth Gordon) and places I’ll never be (New York 1920) that I’ve ever read.

It’s one of my 3 favorite performer memoirs – with Moss Hart’s “Act One” and Anita Loos’ “A Girl Like I“.

Such fun, fun summer reading!
