Review:

A century after his birth he seems the last holy writer, and the supreme fabulist of modern man's cosmic predicament. -- John Updike, The New Yorker

His writings are the beautiful and fantastic prolegomena to Buddhism which he never chose to formulate. -- Aldous Huxley

Kafka never wrote a more accurate picture of Central Europe than in his novel Amerika. -- Eleanor Clark, The Griffin

This fantasy of a New World, so full of a childlike genius...this strange book—Amerika. -- Thomas Mann
