From the Publisher. When little Adolph (”Harpo”) Marx was literally tossed out the window of Miss Flatto’s second grade it set in motion a chain of events, culminating in his Bar Mitzvah, which he describes with an engaging mixture of sweetness and hilarity in this memoir of a child’s life in an immigrant family at the turn of the century. Long before vaudeville, Broadway, and the silver screen, Harpo Marx triumphed on the greatest stage of all—New York City. Optimistic and wry, with an unforgettable cast of characters, and set against the backdrop of a long-vanished Manhattan, this is the delightful memoir of a second-grade dropout.
