Rare 95-year-old letter reveals Kafka's mouse phobia
Letter was apparently part of the bequest of Kafka's friend Max Brod.
A rare letter written by Franz Kafka 95 years ago has been purchased by the German Archive of Literature, at a public auction held this weekend. This letter was apparently part of the bequest of Kafka's friend Max Brod. A court recently ruled that this collection of manuscripts should be transferred to the National Library in Jerusalem, as Brod had bequeathed in his will.
