I read the long story "A Prolonged Childhood and Summer and Winter in Another City" in a literary journal  in 1974 and was smitten. The story was brilliant and original, something between Camus and  Salinger. The post script indicated that the writer Naftali  Yavin was dead and a...

Has a Kafka trend erupted across the theatres of the world? Are we awaiting a Second Koming? All this plus a musical adaptation currently take place, from New York to London (twice). Kafka adaptations of various sorts. Imaginative! Yes, it must be Kafka. [DE]        ...

Well, maybe not exactly a musical, but Kafka put to any type of song and musical production is - if I may coin a phrase - Kafkaesque. More so when the fact is taken into consideration that Kafka himself was tone deaf. Perhaps he would have appreciated not being able to appreciate himself. [DE]...

Massaging warm olive oil into my hands, face and legs, then wrapping in hot wet towels. To heal cracked fingertips, smooth hardened cheekbones, and soothe sore red skin irritated by too many layers of clothing.  It is the Norwich cold.  Standing on the bathroom scales and shrieking....

  I am like a woman who keeps being lured towards the mad, bad lover, while a perfectly nice guy is standing around, available.  I have always been fiercely judgmental of women like that.  Why don’t they think with their brain instead of their heart? I have always asked.  And...

  The last novel I read--and reviewed--was Lionel Asbo: State of England.  It was about a sociopath in a dark corner of London.  Having finished it, I asked myself about its British precursors, particularly one I had not read, though I’d seen Stanley Kubrick’s movie:  A...

  Lional Asbo: State of England is the first book I've read by Martin Amis.  I don't think it will be the last, though it's hard to imagine a novel, or a writer, so lathered in its satire that often you can't tell what's going on…or decide whether anyone who lives as comfortable a life in...

Not bad for a fellow who was tone deaf and cared little for music.  I doubt the singing voice would fare any better for Kafka. However, he had a deep interest in theatre. Perhaps he would garner some appreciation for the words (most of which are his own). The text in this article is a first...
