The highly praised three-volume Kafka biography by Reiner Stach is now finally available in its entirety in a decorative slipcase. With his opus magnum, Reiner Stach is setting new standards in the biographic genre and complementing the work with an additional volume: Kafka from Day to Day. Here he presents events that took place on each day of Kafka’s life, and shows what happened in his direct surroundings and also on a world political level. The result of decades of work and analysis of an almost infinite wealth of material – a real treasure.
The biography also made a big impression abroad: It was on the bestseller list in Spain, it got fantastic reviews in the US and is nominated for the Plutarch Award.
