JOACHIM UNSELD - Franz Kafka, a Writer's Life

Title: Franz Kafka, a Writer's Life
Description: Ariadne Press, 1994, (1e druk), 393 blz., Porto 6,00 euro NL, ISBN 0929497783, Hardcover with dustjacket, stains on book block, name on title page, in good condition., Franz Kafka's wishes concerning publication of his works during his lifetime as well as the disposition of his literary estate have long been controversial and have given rise to many misunderstandings and misrepresentations - some attaining an almost folkloristic status. The prevalent view of an author who desired to have his works destroyed contradicts the reality shown here of the close, symbiotic relationship between Kafka's private life and his literary ambitions. Particular attention is given to Kafka's relationship to and interactions with his publishers, as Unseld discloses the history of the primary correspondence between Kafka and Ernst Rowohlt, Kurt Wolff, and his friend and tireless advocate, Max Brod..
