saturday review (presented by tom sutcliffe) includes …

“When Franz Kafka died in 1924, he left instructions that any remaining manuscripts should be burnt. These instructions were not followed and a legal battle ensued to decide to whom they should belong: to the country of his language – Germany, of his birth – Czechoslovakia or his cultural affinities -Israel?. Benjamin Balint‘s book Kafka’s Last Trial follows the machinations of alleged ownership.”
