Kafka’s Last Story

“Dear Max – All that is left in my estate must be burned completely, without reading. Yours, Franz Kafka.” Almost a century after he wrote the best-known will in the literary world, the remains of Franz Kafka’s estate, one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers, find their way to an apartment in Tel-Aviv’s Spinoza Street, where Eva H. lives with her several dozen cats. Kafka’s unburned manuscripts are worth millions and are at the heart of a heated literary and political wrangling between Israel, Germany and Miss H.
