Don't you wonder: why is it necessary to declare me dead again and again?

This is the question posed by Karl Marx in Howard Zinn's witty and insightful play on history. The premise of this one-man performance is that history's most famous, and oft-misrepresented, radical is resurrected after agitating with the authorities of the afterlife to clear his name. Through a bureaucratic error, however, Marx lands in modern-day Soho, New York, rather than his old stomping grounds in London, to make his case.

    " brilliant...bloody brilliant "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 5/10/2013

    " A long fictional monologue of Marx reflecting on the 20th century. I actually didn't read it, but saw it performed. It's the kind of thing that just HAD to be written... nothing exceptional, but worth checking out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sasha | 4/25/2013

    " I chuckled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Melcher | 4/19/2013

    " Too short. It would have been interesting to expand. It is more an essay than a play. Fun and agreeable to read. A good Karl Marx refresher "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cagney | 1/4/2013

    " Zinn has a way of building me up to a thought or a theory then delivering that theory with prose that far surpasses my own construction of the idea. Not necessarily a great play, but a great text, and a must read for any aspiring revolutionary. "

    " Karl Marx as a voice of justice --which he was. "

    " A weird little play. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 7/3/2012

    " Reading this was interesting, but I'd really like to see it performed. Unfortunately, that may be a while out here in Utah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob | 11/5/2011

    " To classify this book as little would be doing it a great disservice. The ideas presented within are larger than life. We must come together to make a better world. This book should be required reading for freshmen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 11/5/2011

    " Very approachable monologue on the life of Marx, connected to our own time and told through his voice. Zinn is masterful in his simplicity of presentation. A must-read. "

    " Marx in Soho was a clever take on how Karl Marx would see the world if he were still alive in contemporary times. "
