On the Trail of Kafka in Prague - by David Farley/ Footsteps/ Travel/ International New York Times/ The New York Times/ nytimes.com

"When I awoke one recent morning in Prague from unsettling dreams, I found myself changed into a tourist on a mission. Changed, anyway, from the traveler I had been when I lived in Prague for three years in the 1990s.

Back then, whatever associations I had between the city and the writer Franz Kafka, a native son, were negative. I loathed the commercialization of Kafka, his face scrawled across coffee mugs and T-shirts in souvenir shops, his name emblazoned on awnings of Old Town cafes and restaurants.

Yet there was always something nagging at me about never having explored the Kafka trail in Prague, an integral part of the city’s cultural history. On top of that, Kafka’s novella “The Metamorphosis,” in which the protagonist, Gregor Samsa, finds himself transformed into a bug, was first published in book form this month a century ago..."

Kafka

I just visited the Franz Kafka Museum in Prague in October. Very interesting. It is under Charles Bridge.

The Metamorphosis is one I'll always remember from early Lit classes. Interesting article about the author.
