Link of the week

Will Self’s foray into digital writing. Erudite and wide-ranging, the essay places Kafka’s story “A Country Doctor” in a broad historical and cultural context supported by a wealth of material, ranging from Klesmer music, Self’s own video travelogue of Prague, animation, interviews with the translator and  even a reading of the story in its original German. You can find the piece here:
