Wow! T.S. Eliot and Groucho Marx were pen pals.

Yale University Press just released a second volume of the letters of T.S. Eliot. The highlight: A series of letters to and from Groucho Marx.

Groucho, the Jewish agent of chaos, and Eliot, the anti-semite cultural conservative, would seem like an odd match. But they were both brilliant and blunt -- which makes for awesome letters.
