Summary

Summary

The writings of Franz Kafka have earned just acclaim as being among the best, most influential works of the 20th century. Kafka's first novel, Amerika, follows the misadventures of 16-year-old Karl Rossman, a European boy whose parents ship him off to America after he is seduced by a servant girl. On arrival, Karl finds an America only Kafka could have envisioned-and the still hopeful youth is soon set upon by odd circumstance and suspect traveling companions.

Author Bio: Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka (1883–1924), one of the major fiction writers of the twentieth century, was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague. His unique body of writing, much of which is incomplete and was mainly published posthumously, is considered by some people to be among the most influential in Western literature, inspiring such writers as Albert Camus, Rex Warner, and Samuel Beckett.
