Franz Kafka




Not bad for £1.99, the complete works plus diaries, all the stuff that was supposed to be consumed by fire. The paper’s thinner than a communion wafer but the binding's a lush piece of work, that skinny san-serif inset in faux red leather, simply too gorgeous to leave on the shelves.

Funny but I can’t seem to recall any music inspired by Kafka although I thought Nick Cave’s 'Saint Huck' had one reference, but that was just my ears playing tricks on me...

Fancy watching the recent theatre production of Metamorphosis though, looks kinda intriguing and would love to hear what Cave and Warren have done sound-wise, just imagining all those scurrying insect feet...

It’s one of those stupid questions that bugs the hell outa yer,
but still no music springing forth to fill that Kafka void, shit I’m going to have to rectify that...
