Marx & Lennon: The Parallel Sayings

Rate this book
Selected by bestselling author Joey Green, a collection of 400 quotes by Marx and Lennon, juxtaposed to reveal their hilarious similarities.

No, not THAT Marx and Lenin! Here's a much funnier and artistically talented pair from history. Revolutionaries in their own rights, John Lennon and Groucho Marx did not share much common ground with their Communist namesakes, or even with each other. Where they do overlap is through their very humorous and irreverent takes on life. Editor Joey Green brings together a collection of more than 400 Groucho Marx and John Lennon sayings, juxtaposed to emphasize their hysterical and unexpected similarities.

With a foreword by Yoko Ono and an introduction by Groucho's son, Arthur Marx.

Hello, Goodbye, or hello, I must be going. Any way one slices it, this is the funniest Marxist/Lennonist tract on record. The parallels and intersections in their lives are not quite Lincoln/Kennedy-like, but still are interesting. This is a worthy reference manual and a refreshing traipse down memory lane.

Side by side, the parallel sayings of (Groucho) Marx and (John) Lennon! What could be better than this uproarious collection of quotes from Marx and Lennon? I pick this up often, when I'm in need of a quick laugh.
