Description
(Finalist for the 2011 National Book Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the National Book Critics Circle Award; Named One of the Year's Best Nonfiction Books by the Washington Post, Boston Globe, Salon.com, and Bloomberg.com) In one of the most widely praised nonfiction books of 2011, Mary Gabriel illuminates the all-too-human side of the man whose works would redefine the political world after his death. Also the biographer of the art-collecting Cone sisters and suffragist Victoria Woodhull (in the New York Times Notable Book Notorious Victoria), Gabriel portrays Karl Marx through his marriage to Jenny von Westphalen, the daughter of a Prussian aristocrat. She reveals the pioneering socialist as a devoted father, a prankster who loved a party, a dreadful procrastinator, a freeloader, and a man of wild enthusiasms—one of which nearly destroyed his marriage. Through years of desperate financial straits, Jenny's love for Karl would be tested again and again as she waited for him to finish his masterpiece, Capital.

"A thrilling story, heroically researched, with passages on every page so startling, exact, moving or perceptive that I wanted to quote them all. Hard to imagine that a weighty book on Karl Marx could be a page-turner, but this one is."—Washington Post
