Amerika by Franz Kafka

Kafkas first and funniest novel, Amerika tells the story of the young immigrant Karl Rossmann who, after an embarrassing sexual misadventure, finds himself packed off to America by his parents. Expected to redeem himself in this magical land of opportunity, young Karl is swept up instead in a whirlwind of dizzying reversals, strange escapades, and picaresque adventures. Although Kafka never visited America, images of its vast landscape, dangers, and opportunities inspired this saga of the golden land. Here is a startlingly modern, fantastic and visionary tale of America as a place no one has yet seen, in a historical period that cant be identified, writes E. L. Doctorow in his new foreword. Kafka made his first novel from his own minds mythic elements, Doctorow explains, and the research data that caught his eye were bent like light rays in a field of gravity.
