-- “I thoroughly enjoyed reading Bill Marx’s life story. I can’t wait for the sequel.”--Irving Brecher, Marx Brothers’ screenwriter
Bill Marx is the last living person to have worked professionally with the three Marx brothers, his uncles Chico and Groucho and his adopted father, Harpo Marx. Son of Harpo Speaks! ($19.99, Applause Books) reveals stories never before in print about this very special man. But it is also a book about a too-Hollywood-
to-believe life-altering quirk of fate that ultimately brought the author together with his biological parents. In addition to the “show-biz”
and “sizzle” expected in the story of a family in the entertainment business, Bill Marx explores the complex task of dealing with both the emotional scars of rejection as well as the secure feelings of acceptance due to his overwhelmingly good fortune of having been adopted by two loving parents.
Bill Marx (Los Angeles, CA) studied composition at Juilliard in New York City. He has composed numerous works for the concert world, motion pictures, television, theater, and ballet. He has produced, arranged, and performed as a pianist on many recordings with notable jazz and pop artists and on two albums with his father Harpo Marx.
