This was a man both fascinated and repulsed by his native city Prague; who sought the Promised Land but was an exile in Berlin; a timid and emotionally vulnerable fiancé and an incorrigible seducer; a fervent sportsman and hypochondriac vegetarian; a godless Jew and fascinated by Jewish culture and the rise of Zionism; a true friend and a loner; madly in love with life and obsessed by the thought of death. Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was a riddle to himself and to others. The French biographer Gérard-Georges Lemaire is one of the outstanding authorities on the Austrian writer, and is himself the author of about forty studies on Kafka's work. This biography seeks an answer to the enigmatic Kafka, one of the least traditional writers of the 20th century, whose works have been translated into dozens of languages and diligently interpreted by literary critics, a favourite for generations of readers, yet never fully understood in his interpretation of the world and of the spiritual life of Man.
