about this book

Amerika, Kafka's first and funniest novel, tells the story of the young immigrant Karl Rossmann who, after an embarrassing sexual misadventure, finds himself "packed off to America" by his parents. Although Kafka never visited America, images of its vast landscape, dangers, and opportunities inspired this saga of the "golden land." With a new Foreword by E.L. Doctorow; Preface by Klaus Mann; Afterword by Max Brod; translated by Willa and Edwin Muir; illustrations by Emlen Etting.
