Roy Blount Jr.'s 6 favorite Marx Brothers books

Roy Blount Jr. is the author of 22 books, including Alphabet Juice and the new Hail, Hail, Euphoria!, an appreciation of the Marx Brothers film Duck Soup.

For The Week magazine, he named his six favorite Marx Brothers books. One title on the list:
Harpo Speaks! by Harpo Marx and Rowland Barber

Harpo was a madcap on and off the screen, but he was also the sweetest and sanest of the brothers. This memoir, which takes Harpo from street-urchin–hood to stardom and a happy family life, is hard to resist.
Read about another book on the list.
