More Kafka Boxes Opened

"Dearest Max, My last request: Everything I leave behind me [is] to be burned unread."

You probably know all about this already. Mark Tran sums up the state of play on Kafka's papers in the Guardian. I'm looking forward to Kafka: The Shopping Lists and Kafka's Top Twenty To-Do Lists.

Update: Kate Connolly reports from Berlin on why this is so fascinating. She only pretends to avoid using the word "kafkaesque".

Egad! Hope this article was prepared in a huge hurry, seeing as it contains my nightmare spelling error: "baited breath"! Just an aside, irrelevant to the unfolding drama.

I mean Connolly's piece, not Tran's or Derbyshire's!!
