Overview
Kafka began writing what he had entitled "Der Verschollene "("The Missing Person") in 1912 and wrote the last completed chapter in 1914. But it wasn t until 1927, three years after his death, that Max Brod, Kafka s friend and literary executor, edited the unfinished manuscript and published it as "Amerika." Kafka s first and funniest novel, "Amerika "tells the story of the young Karl Rossmann who, after an incident involving a housemaid, is banished by his parents to America. Expected to redeem himself in this magical land of opportunity, young Karl is swept up instead in a whirlwind of dizzying reversals, strange escapades, and picaresque adventures."
