Max Brod was Kafka’s closest companion, his greatest advocate, and his literary executor – all of which are clearly evident in this biography.
While Brod perceived a tremendous sorrow lurking beneath the surface of Kafka’s sardonic smile, he prefers to speak of Kafka’s wonderful sense of humor, his truthfulness, his ability to say many things in few words, and most of all, his fascination with “the greatness of nature, the curative, health-giving, sound, firmly established, simple things.”
While some of Brod’s opinions certainly raise an eyebrow here and there, it is important to keep in mind that he was Kafka’s best friend, and was a crucial presence during the entire course of Kafka’s adult life.
