Photo: Book's cover, from its Wikipedia page.  Great cover!   Very specifically-written account of the murders committed by Dr. Marcel Petoit, of which there may have been 27, or 150, or anything in between, by David King.  In Nazi-occupied Paris, he would advertize his services...

OK - maybe this is the last I'll make about this. Start and end the week with Kafka - who can possibly ask for more. But the minute any details emerge about what is actually in this trove of manuscripts - attention must be paid and comment will be made. Particularly if there happens to be any form...

Here is some more about the four year trial concerning Kafka manuscripts. I wonder what Kafka would be thinking ... from the grave.

There is information in this article which I did not know - always a pleasing situation when learning about Kafka. I did not realize that the bulk of his extant manuscripts were given to his nieces by Max Brod and it was they, in turn, who gave them to Oxford University's Bodleian Library. How...

And, as Kafka knew only too well, judgement is not necessarily justice. In fact he might make that comment even about God. The courts of man have now ground on for three years in Israel, concerning papers by Kafka which he had directed destroyed.  Now, Kafka being Kafka, he asked Max Brod, the...
