  • The whole idea started with the fact that Salvador Dali and Harpo Marx admired each other s work In fact, Dali viewed the Marx Brothers as being a genuinely surreal comedy group, although perhaps only Harpo would have agreed.The story itself is almost secondary, since surrealism was big on mind games, and that is what much of this story is If you don t insist on a plot that makes sense, and what Marx Brothers fan is really that limited, then the weird happenings in this book can be viewed as o T [...]
