Here is the story of young Karl Rossman, who, following an incident involving a housemaid, is banished by his parents to America. With unquenchable optimism and in the company of two comic-sinister companions, he throws himself into misadventure, eventually heading towards Oklahoma, where a career in the theater beckons.

Auf mehr als hundert handschriftlichen Seiten analysiert Kafka das Verhältnis zu seinem schier übermächtigen Vater.

The diaries, 1910-1923 by Franz Kafka( Book )

These diaries cover the years 1910 to 1923, the year before Kafka's death at the age of forty. They provide a penetrating look into life in Prague and into Kafka's accounts of his dreams, his feelings for the father he worshipped and the woman he could not bring himself to marry, his sense of guilt, and his feelings of being an outcast. They offer an account of a life of almost unbearable intensity. From the Trade Paperback edition

As travelling salesman Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. He was lying on his hard, as it were armor-plated, back and when he lifted his head a little he could see his domelike brown belly divided into stiff arched segments on top of which the bed quilt could hardly stay in place and was about to slide off completely. His numerous legs, which were pitifully thin compared to the rest of his bulk, waved helplessly before his eyes

First published in 1919, among the 14 stories contained in this volume are some of Kafka's most renowned shorter works: "Before the Law," "Jackals and Arabs," "A Report for an Academy." As with the other volumes published by Twisted Spoon Press, Kevin Blahut has produced a translation that is contemporary and fresh, capturing perfectly the ironic humor found in these stories. Though each volume has its own distinctive character, they have most often appeared in English in omnibus editions. They are presented here as separate editions, in new translations, each with its own illustrator from the Prague community
Franz Kafka : pictures of a life by Klaus Wagenbach( Book )
18 editions published between 1958 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 420 libraries worldwide
"In Kafka's writing, Albert Camus tells us, we travel "to the limits of human thought." And in this book, the world's leading Kafka authority conducts us to the deepest reaches of Kafka's own troubled psyche, to reveal the inner workings of the man who gave his name to a central facet of modern experience, the Kafkaesque. Klaus Wagenbach, who wrote the first major critical biography of Kafka, draws upon a wealth of new and recent information to produce a concise but finely nuanced portrait of the author, an ideal introduction to this quintessential figure of modernity." "With extensive reference to Kafka's extraordinary letters and diaries, Wagenbach shows us the author of Metamorphosis and The Trial perpetually caught between the irresistible attractions of the world and his ruthless desire for solitude and isolation. It was this tension, Wagenbach tells us, that gave Kafka's writing its uncanny quality and that haunted his intense, unresolved relationships with women. And it was in this tension that both his misery and mastery inhered, making his one of the most painfully powerful voices of the experience of the twentieth century."--Jacket
