A very useful guide,
This review is from: Kafka: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)I bought this book in order to gain a quick insight into the works and workings of one of the most enigmatic authors in German literature.
I was under immense time pressure to learn about Kafka before a forthcoming university interview so this book was ideal as it wasted no time and got straight into analysing and evaluating his stories as well as giving a brief historical background to aid understanding of the sometimes challenging texts.
Kafka has become one of my favourite authors and even though i have now read nearly all of the published works of Kafka, i still reference this great little book all the time.
