From Publisher:

Love and Capital reveals the rarely glimpsed and heartbreakingly human side of the man whose works would redefine the world after his death, as well as a vivid account of the woman who gave him the strength to follow his dangerous course.

Drawing upon previously unpuslihed material, Mary Gabriel tells the story of Karl and Jenny Marx's marriage. Through it, we see Karl as never before: a devoted father and husband, a prankster who loved a party, a dreadful procrastinator, a freeloader, and a man of wild enthusiasms -- one of which would almost destroy his marriage. Through years of desperate struggle, Jenny's love for Karl would be tested again and again as she waited for him to finish his masterpiece, Capital.

An epic narrative that stretches over decades to recount Karl and Jenny's story against a backdrop of Europe's nineteenth century, Love and Capital is a surprising and magisterial account of romance and revolution -- and one of the great love stories of all time.
