These dairies are fascinating. It's like being inside the mind of a writer. I loved the story fragments and beginnings of novels and some of his observations in his travel diaries were reminiscent of Karl on the Idiot Abroad. It was also interesting reading these entries along with the letters.

It's interesting to note the sexual undertones in his words.
Read in a Russian translation & abridged edition.

Franz Kafka (German pronunciation: [ˈfʀants ˈkafka]) was one of the major fiction writers of the 20th century. He was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague, Bohemia (presently the Czech Republic), Austria–Hungary.

Aber sie liegt dort, nicht feindselig, nicht widerwillig, nicht taub. Ruft man sie mit dem richtigen Wort, beim richtigen Namen, dann kommt sie. Das ist das Wesen der Zauberei, die nicht schafft, sondern ruft.
