191 editions published between 1952 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der 1919 abgefasste Brief an den Vater, von Franz Kafka niemals abgeschickt oder veröffentlicht, gibt wie kaum ein anderer Text aus seiner Feder tiefe biografische und psychoanalytische Einblicke. Kafka findet in dem hier beschriebenen Vaterkonflikt vielerlei Gründe für die Entwicklung seines zögerlichen Wesens und anderer Züge seiner Persönlichkeit mit denen er zeitlebens haderte. Die 103 handschriftlichen Seiten schrieb Kafka vermutlich kurz nach dem Scheitern seiner Heiratspläne mit Julie Wohryceck, einer in seines Vaters Augen nicht standesgemäßen Verbindung. Gesprochen hat der Hamburger Schauspieler Martin Brücker, der hier zum erstenmal für den HörGut! Verlag liest
Letters to friends, family, and editors by Franz Kafka( Book )

93 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These magnificent letters, meticulously set up and annotated, show us aspects of Kafka that were only hinted at in earlier collections and help us trace his development from unhappy young law student and insurance administrator to novelist and short-story writer of originality and genius."--Publishers Weekly "When we turn from Kafka's books to his letters we have a series of self-portraits desperate and courageous, always eager and warm in feeling; the self is lit by fantasy and, of course, by drollery. His candor is of the kind that flies alongside him in the air. He was a marvelous letter writer."--V.S. Pritchett, The New York Review of Books "These letters are like messages from the underground, from the dark side of the moon, presenting aspects of Kafka that would have died with his friends. We meet alternately Kafka the artist, friend, son, father figure, marriage counselor, literary critic, insurance official. ... A full portrait, and a significant contribution to Kafka scholarship." --Smithsonian Magazine "An inside view of a writer who, perhaps more than any other novelist or poet in our century, stands at the center of our culture." --Robert Alter, The New York Times Book Review
