Kafka's Last Trial

Nonetheless, like the man in the parable, we ultimately come back to our faith in the law. In the coming weeks, a court-appointed group will finish inventorying the remaining boxes, as well as the contents of the Spinoza Street apartment. It’s only a matter of time before the list is made public and most of the materials find their way to one archive or another. The last doorkeeper out of the way, we’ll be as close to Kafka as we’re ever going to get.

Nice find. Thanks for posting. And thank you, too, NYT (I know you don't get a lot of love around here).

Good timing! I'm reading The Trial, and I just attempted to play Kafkamesto (until the futility of life got to me again)

Harlan should read this.

What will we do--liberals to scorn the paper as too soft; conservatives to call the paper Left wing but still read it--when sometime next year The New York Times goes behind a paywall?
