Austrian novelist whose fame reached its height after WW II. During his lifetime, only a few of his short stories were published. He requested that his writing be burned after his death, but his friend disregarded his wishes and edited his work. Three novels were published, "The Trial," 1925, "The Castle," 1926 and "America," 1927, all dealing with interwoven dreams and reality, studies in anxiety.
Kafka was first a lawyer, then an insurance official, work he hated. Gay and an insomniac, he died of tuberculosis in a sanatorium 6/03/1924, Klosterneuburg, Austria.
Note that while he was born in Prague, now in Czechoslovakia, at the time of his birth Prague was part of the Austrian-Hungarian empire.

Date from Joan McEvers, who had a time of 7:00 AM with no source. His "Letters to Friends, Family and Editors," translated from the German "Briefe," 1902, had no data. Penfield Collection gives the same data as "personal," not confirmed by any source.
B.C. in hand from Filipe Ferreira 9/2000, has no time listed on the original record. (Document obtained through Archivex Praha, PO Box 38, 18200 Praha 8, Czech Republic.)
(3/2001, Zoe writes,"I found the 7am time on line at several different biographic sites. However, I've asked a colleague in Pravda if he has the information, and I also found a most useful set of databases in Czech which says
Kafka Franz, 03-07-1883, Praha, 09:20 UT, (jiný cas 03:58 UT, dle Astro 20/97 02:15 UT, dle C.Weiss 07:00), +03-06-24." LMR wrote to Weiss on 3/12/2001 to ask if he had a source for the data, and also wrote to Andre Barbaut.)
Andre Barbault in personal correspondence with LMR May 2001 writes that "Ritter gave 7:00 AM according to information from Max Brod, whom I do not know. Then he inserted an element of doubt by adding "a biography gives 6:40 AM," and "before midnight." He added, "Incomprehensible: I have no idea of what he meant."
