Franz Kafka, Nahum N Glatzer
Why read it?
1 author picked Kafka as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
This book, unique in its construction, gave me a deeper insight into this leading author of the 20th century. We all know and may use the term “Kafkaesque” we don’t necessarily know from whence the term and its experience comes. This biography, drawing from Kafka’s own writings, documents his life in his own words. Glatzer has masterfully edited excerpts from the writer’s diaries, letters, and published works to create an autobiography that Kafka “contemplated but never wrote.” Kafka’s world view, the Kafkaesque, is vividly evoked.
Our community of 10,000+ authors has personally recommended 100 books like Kafka.
