Happy Birthday Franz Kafka!

Franz Kafka
Happy birthday to Franz Kafka!

Kafka was born on July 3, 1883 in Prague. Kafka began his career by writing short stories in his spare time. Very few Franz Kafka works were published during his lifetime- his friend Max Brod published many Franz Kafka books after his death in 1924 at the tender age of 40.

Notable writers Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre were heavily influenced by the Franz Kafka bibliography.
