Franz Kafka: I Write Differently...

I write differently from the way I speak, I speak differently from the way I think, I think differently from the way I should think - and so it goes on into the darkest depths of infinity

(Letter to Ottla, July 10, 1914)

You obviously loved Gass' review in Harpers' of that recent Kafka Bio! Fabulous!

I see you're looking good and hear you're in love ;-) I hope the rest of the great battle is faring as well!

Thanks for dropping in!
There's a lot going on with me. I think i'll be in touch sooner or later.

I haven't read the review bu the latest issue just showed up so I will be sure to read it.

Unfortunately my "love" is lost and thus my silly laments :)

Please let me know how you are doing Mason--I'm going to be in Baltimore/DC area early august--how close is that to you?

Jam Rek my friend

Thanks Joseph,

I also like your Kafka quote and discussion about the effect of one's "environment"
