KIRKUS REVIEW

A rags to riches biography -- a bit on the gossip column side -- but a fat reference book of anecdotes for the Marx Brothers' follower. The story of Groucho, Harpo, Zeppo, Chico, and Gummo --but particularly of Minnie, the indefatigable, determined mother who pushed, managed, comforted, and kept together the wandering, restless and varied family of boys -- molding the acts, working the relatives and living to see her boys a success. Somewhat sensational but entertaining.
