Franz Kafka based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Max Brod was not only the best friend of Kafka ,he was the person who literally saved Kafka's writings from the flames.Kafka willed that his work be destroyed but his friend Brod,fortunately for world literature, did not heed this request. Brod a prolific and well- known writer himself had the wisdom and generosity of spirit to understand that it was his friend who was the great genius .In this highly important book historically he gives his version of his friend 's life and work. This is an invaluable source for all scholars of Kafka,and though it be in some sense surpassed by subsequent scholarship it remains a primal document of great importance.
