THE word according to Marx - that's Groucho Marx.

His correspondence with the great and the good has been re-published and is still one of the outstanding collections of letters that will be seen.

Groucho Marx didn't seem to mind who he had in his sights when he unleashed his prose.

There are letters in the collection to such people as James Thurber, Edward R Murrow, Irving Berlin and President Harry Truman.

When Groucho wanted to say something, he simply went to work on his typewriter.

And the result is a collection of observations on the way of the world in which his view was different - but it often made sense.
