Kafka's afterlife
Of course he never died of TB. Popular myth though that is, here's an image of Kafka with his fiancé and baby daughter Laura. Kafka is reported to have said that literature failed to rouse his interests anymore. When asked what "all his texts really meant" he replied by stating that a closer scrutiny of Von den Gleichnissen ("On Parables") would reveal it all.
The Kafka family currently reside in the Lago Maggiore region where they devote their spare time to the local badger shelter.
