"A rick, humanizing portrait of the Marx family... A saga as richly realized as a fine Victorian novel." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
The beginning of the book paints a bleak picture of weary poverty on the London streets, then juxtaposed with brilliant minds hard at work with their respective masterpieces: Dickens creating David Copperfield, Charles Darwin studying barnacles, and Karl Marx plotting the overthrow of kings and capitalists because he could see the poverty almost as clearly as the poor souls on the streets.
Oh, have I got a thinking book for you.
By Mary Gabriel
Drawing upon years of research, acclaimed biographer Mary Gabriel brings to light the story of Karl and Jenny Marx's marriage. We follow them as they roam Europe, on the run from governments amidst an age of revolution and a secret network of would-be revolutionaries, and see Karl not only as an intellectual, but as a protective father and loving husband, a revolutionary, a jokester, a man of tremendous passions, both political and personal.
In LOVE AND CAPITAL, Mary Gabriel has given us a vivid, resplendent, and truly human portrait of the Marxes-their desires, heartbreak and devotion to each other's ideals.
