Nearly a century after Franz Kafka's passing, his works still captivate and linger in our minds. Even for those briefly familiar with his unfinished novels, short stories, diaries, and letters, his name has become synonymous with the ominous and incomprehensible absurdity of modern life.

Despite the universal implications of his writing, Kafka's literary legacy is inseparable from his life and experiences in Prague, where he spent all 40 years of his life. Klaus Wagenbach's meticulously researched account delves into Kafka's family background, education, employment, views on his hometown, literary influences, and relationships with women. The result is a mesmerizing portrait of the 20th century's most enigmatic author and the city that served as a wellspring of creativity for him; W.G. Sebald observed that Kafka's works are a fusion of literature and life, a concept exemplified by this book.
