“This is the closest we have to Kafka’s memoirs, a story of mutual misunderstanding and alienation, charted in a series of evocatively sketched scenes . . . For all its power of psychological analysis, the tone is rarely self-pitying but almost forensically detached . . . The fact that Kafka nearly always gives his father the benefit of the doubt makes his accusations all the more devastating.” —Carolin Duttlinger, The Times Literary Supplement

“Kafka’s principal attempt at self-clarification is also one of the great confessions of literature.” —F. W. Dupee, The New York Times Book Review
