Amerika

Written by Franz Kafka

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

Amerika Synopsis

Karl Rossman has been banished by his parents to America, following a family scandal. There, with unquenchable optimism, he throws himself into the strange experiences that lie before him as he slowly makes his way into the interior of the great continent. Kafka's first novel (begun in 1911 and never finished) is infused with a quite un-Kafkaesque blitheness and sunniness, brought to life in this lyrical translation that returns to the original manuscript of the book.

Amerika Press Reviews

It was Kafka who made me understand that one can write differently -- Gabriel Garcia Marquez He is the greatest German writer of our time. Such poets as Rilke or such novelists as Thomas Mann are dwarfs or plaster saints in comparison to him -- Vladimir Nabokov No other voice has borne truer witness to the dark of our times -- George Steienr
