In a compact masterpiece of time travel, alternate American history and comedy, master of alternate history and New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove presents the Marx Brothers in the unlikeliest of settings.

Fresh from Duck Soup (1933), Julius, Leonard, Arthur and Herbert Marx - or as the world knows them, Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo - are transported by a freak electrical storm to Nacogdoches, Texas in the year 1826. Landing in the midst of the Fredonian Rebellion (the first attempt by settlers in Texas to secede from Mexico) and into the company of the only other Jewish person in town, they are in deep dreck.

Falling in with Stephen F. Austin and inadvertently filling his head with knowledge of what is to come, our heroes risk tampering with the future of Texas, and perhaps the entire U.S.A., in their quest to return to their own time.

Will they find their way back? Or will they be doomed to live out their lives without indoor plumbing?
