Kafka is both comedy and lack of affect in the comedy (Gregor) and all but inexplicable exigency. home and inwardness, for these last you only need look to Josephine The Singer,or the Mousefolk, which is one of the strangest and most heart rending stories that i've ever read. I don't read Kafka's prose as sober, rather for me it is reeling, bruising, thoroughly situated; both within and without my reach as a human being. In comparison, what Hetero points to is well crafted reportage, Therein lies the trouble with persuasion by means of illustration when it doesn't persuade. It's all de gustibus
