So, to get you up to speed: earlier this month, a British scholar announced that his upcoming book would reveal a heretofore unknown fact about famous and long-dead Czech writer Franz Kafka, author of The Metamorphosis and The Trial. Namely, Kafka enjoyed pornography.
Now, a bunch of Kafka scholars from Germany, eager to preserve the writer’s saintly rep, are spitting mad and accusing the British scholar, whose book was published yesterday, of, among other things, anti-semitism.
Isn’t it nice to have Kafka in the news? It’s such a welcome break from Spencer and Heidi.
