Trials and Tribulations: Will Self teaches Franz Kafka

Award winning novelist and journalist Will Self presents a personal guide to the legendary author Franz Kafka.

His writing summoned up the terrifying frustration and ceaseless anxiety of life and work in industrialised society, with his nightmare visions of incomprehensible bureaucracies, petty authorities and social conformity being relevant to the current social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The inspiration behind works as diverse as Catch 22, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, and Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, his imprint on culture is indelible.
