KARL MARX: HIS LIFE AND THOUGHT. BY DAVID McLellan, New York: Harper & Row, 1974.
About the book: Half the world's population lives under political systems that claim their inspiration from Karl Marx. For someone so influential, it is surprising that so little has been known of his private life and that his ideas were so misunderstood. McLellan's balanced and comprehensive biography presents for the 1st time a full picture of Marx.
From the book: Here is Karl Marx's own account of himself as he gave it playing the Victorian parlor game of "Confessions."

Singleness of purpose

Your idea of misery
The vice you excuse most
The vice you detest most
