Renowned Kafka scholar Jeremy Adler examines the life of the writer who probed the hostile side of modernity in darkly terrifying masterpieces that mirrored the turmoil of his own inner world. The illustrations in this volume include rarely seen drawings from Kafka's workbooks, images of the Prague environment that inspired his nightmarish works, photos of Kafka with friends and colleagues, and reproductions of letters, manuscripts, and first edition book jackets.
