Born in Prague, he grew up in an upper middle-class Jewish family, worked in insurance and wrote at night. He explored the human struggles for understanding and security in his novels. Most of his famous works like Amerika, The Trial and The Castle were published by Kafka’s dearest friend, Max Brod, after his death, which made him a celebrity writer. His best-selling story book is ‘The Metamorphosis’ which offers a direct view of the Vltava River and its toll bridge. Just take a look at the top 10 Franz Kafka quotes below.
