He is most well-known as the friend and biographer of Franz Kafka. As Kafka's literary executor, Brod refused to follow the writer's instructions to burn his unpublished manuscripts after his death. Instead, he edited and published Kafka's work in the 1930s. Max Brod wrote and published many novels which combined elements of fantasy, mysticism, and eroticism and are written in a direct style. His first novel and fourth book: Nornepygge Castle (Schloss Nornepygge) published in 1908 when he was just twenty-four years old, was celebrated in Berlin literary circles as a masterpiece of expressionism. As well as Franz Kafka, Max Brod encouraged many other writers and musicians. He critically recommended Jaroslav Ha¿ek's 'The Good Soldier Svejk' and this played a major part in this novel becoming such a popular success. ***First impression of the first UK edition in English of Reubeni: Prince of the Jews - extremely rare to find complete in its original 1929 dustwrapper in collectable condition. Of interest to collectors of rare German early twentieth-century literary first editions in English translation. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Seller Inventory # 4201
