- Nov 1, 2005I doubt Kafka would have used online dating services, given they had
existed 80+ years ago.
I picked up a couple of books about Kafka's love life recently, used
books which I found hiding on the shelves of a book store and were
marked for a reasonable price, but I haven't read any of them--was
there a particular interest in this part of his life a few years
back? I've been busy reading new translations into English of much of
his original work these last few years and have generally been
avoiding those biographies and critical studies of his love life
(although I still buy anything with Kafka in the title, it seems).
Does anyone have a suggestion of a good biography which doesn't paint
the man as some cultural icon? Actually, I'd be interested to read
more about his family and sisters rather than more speculation about
his sexual potency--I enjoyed reading the letters to his family and
wonder how much more might be out there.
