Interviewer: "Tell me about the time you were interviewed by Ed Murrow in your garden."
Groucho Marx: "That was when I was trying to grow my own avocados. I planted an avocado tree, but nothing happened. Then somebody told me I had to have a male and a female tree. Can you believe it? So I planted them, but they just stood there, didn't even look at each other. I still wonder what an avocado tastes like. But I did love my little orchard. It's the sap in me, I guess."
Presented as a comfortable chat between Groucho Marx and a time-traveling interviewer, this compact little book imagines what it would be like to spend and hour or two with one of America's greatest humorists over a cup of tea or coffee. The entertaining conversation is purely fictional, yet solidly based on biographical facts.
