David Zane Mairowitz & Robert Crumb: Kafka for beginners
“What do I have in common with the Jews? I don’t even have anything in common with myself”. Nothing could better express the essence of Franz Kafka, a man described by his friends as living behind a ‘glass wall’.
David Mairowitz’s brilliant text and the illustrations of the world’s greatest underground comic artist, Robert Crumb, help us to see beyond the cliché ‘Kafkaesque’ and to peer through the glass wall at the unique creature on display there.
