Having once been buried in the roots of modernity, Kafka now seeks to discipline and correct a near-future not quite our own, and he does so with a smile. Told from the perspective of a police profiler finally getting to meet her literary hero--in his jail cell--Kafka the Joker takes a nonsensical situation and makes it mean something.Letter to a Friend uses the premise of private correspondence and turns it into a series of essays--twisted and twisting, insightful and inciting--which ultimately contribute to the dystopia already laid out in the first story. The lines between fact and fiction are blurred even further as a new Underground Man spins a whirlwind treatise about technological addiction, politics, serial killers--everything from Rousseau to the Unabomber--civilization and its malcontents.Two interlinked fictional experiments--presented in one ebook.
