This is one of the best books I have read in getting in the mind of the subject. Each page brings something new to light in discovery about Kafka’s personality or his thought process. It shows his strengths in addition to his weaknesses and I am only to page 133!!! It is extremely interesting to see the mind set of a writer and what he has to endure in order to pursue his craft and to do this right in the middle of WWI had to have been very trying. I am really enjoying this book and look forward to the forthcoming book about his youth in addition to the one before this: Kafka: The Decisive Years
