After earning a law degree in 1906, he worked for most of his adult life at the Worker's Accident Insurance Institute in Prague. Only a small portion of Kafka's writings were published during his lifetime.

Narcissism.....
A letter Kafka wrote to his narcissistic father. (However, his mother never gave it to the father.)
Kafka powerfully and succinctly describes the behavior of his narc father and the effects it had on him.
Originally written in German, it has both the German and the English translation.

This is a letter never sent. It is written from Kafka the tormented son to his father Hermann. It tells of the relationship of father and son, as seen by the son. But a good part of the son's seeing is his understanding of his father, and his father's perception of and disappointment with him. It is an analysis of his father's life also , and in a way an attempt to make a kind of connection with the distant father the son has not really had in life.

For anyone who has had a difficult father whose love and approval they so much longed for , and did not have - this work will be a soul- opening one. It is painful, deep, true and as with all Kafka somehow mysteriously deep and beautiful .

A great great work of a great great genius.

This little book, actually, "letter" will get to your heart. Its one of the most human prose I have ever read, the intimate conflits in a father-son relationship. No not stop until you find it, you will not regret it.
