Kafka Up Close’: An Exchange

In response to:

Kafka Up Close from the February 10, 2005 issue

To the Editors:

Frederick Crews’s review of two of my books [“Kafka Up Close,” NYR, February 10] brings to light but does not fairly account for the disagreements between us on the interpretation of Kafka.
