“Refreshingly factual. . . . Here prophet Kafka and quotidian Kafka are not in conflict.” —Zadie Smith, New York Review of BooksFranz Kafka is the voice of the outsider at once defined by its affiliations and completely, utterly alone. He was a Jew among Christians, a nonobservant Jew among believers. Louis Begley, himself a multilingual exile and, like Kafka, a lawyer and writer, renders Kafka’s life with sensitivity and insight.
