Karl Marx is a revolutionary. He is not alone. It is November 1849 and London is full of them: a bunch of fanatical dreamers trying to change the world. Persecuted by a tyrannical housekeeper and ignored by his sexually liberated wife, Marx immerses himself in his writing, believing that his book on capital is the surest way of ushering in the workers’ revolution and his family out of poverty. But when a mysterious figure begins to take an obsessive interest in his work Marx’s revolutionary journey takes an unexpected turn… Marx Returns combines historical fiction, psychological mystery, philosophy, differential calculus and extracts from Marx and Engels’s collected works to reimagine the life and times of one of history’s most exceptional minds, in this next fiction offering from Zero Books.
