    One thought on “K: A Biography of Kafka”

    1. Modern biography. Rather disjointed, and persistently uses German titles of books without even having a simple list to cross-check them. Some areas too brief (Dora squeezed on to a few pages at the end) and the chronology occasionally jumps a little. On the other hand, the lit crit is better, so overall, probably 2.5 stars.See my Kafka-related bookshelf for other works by and about Kafka (/review/list/).

    2. Began very slow when discussing his early life and relationships. The latter part of the book improved when it began discussing his illness and his writing.
