Synopsis

Franz Kafka The Ghosts in the Machine by Stanley Corngold, Benno Wagner

Franz Kafka: The Ghosts in the Machine adds an original critical framework to the work begun by Stanley Corngold and Benno Wagner in their monumental collection Franz Kafka: The Office Writings (2008). It is widely acknowledged that Kafka s daytime occupation as a specialist in industrial accident insurance contributed in a significant way to his fiction.
