FKS presents two contributions by David Langwallner
The Franz Kafka Society is proud to present two articles by David Langwallner, inspired by his tenure as visiting professor in Prague and his deep interest in modern Czech literature and culture (by special arrangement with the author).
They were published in The Village (June 2017) and Cassandra Voices (October 2019), respectively.
