I am a Memory Come Alive
Autobiographical Writings by Franz Kafka
First US edition, hardback in dustwrapper. Fore-edge untrimmed. 21 × 14.5cm, 264pp.
Franz Kafka described himself as "a ghost of a vanished age"; yet he was a visionary of a coming era. This is a documentary autobiography of the writer who perhaps more than any other twentieth century novelist has captured the imagination of the contemporary reader, and whose name has become synonymous with the condition of our time.
A decent solid copy but the wrapper's spine is faded, the pages are foxed to the top edge and there is a slight musty aroma, However, it remains in strong readable condition.
