Dear Kafka

Just a quick note to say, I admire your willingness to devote yourself to your craft. I admire your writing, your brilliant handful of bestselling stories, and your vision of not just writing literature, but of being a part of literature. I would like to read this new book I have heard so much about. Private letters are always intriguing to read. They hold the distinctive voice of a writer that is ultimately different from that of the writer’s fiction or poetry. Or, maybe not. Either way, please send me a copy asap.

Yours sincerely,

ps–the cheque is in the mail.
