Irony Alert: Kafka's Lost Writings Stuck in Byzantine Bureaucracy
This is an amazing story.
JERUSALEM – It seems almost Kafkaesque: Ten safety deposit boxes of never-published writings by Franz Kafka, their exact contents unknown, are trapped in courts and bureaucracy, much like one of the nightmarish visions created by the author himself.
The papers, retrieved from bank vaults where they have sat untouched and unread for decades, could shed new light on one of literature's darkest figures.
Irony aside, holy moly. Ten boxes of unread writings by Kafka!
After the smoke clears, it should be an fascinating historical find.
Via Beata at my place.
