I Remember – #806

I remember reading a collection of Kafka’s works, I believe a compilation of all of the writing that the had published before dying.  The introduction, which I enjoyed when I read as an, oh, eighteen or nineteen year old, was written by Jorge Luis Borges.  Who?  A year or two after that I discovered and read Ficciones, and then much, much more of Borges.  It would have been only in my late twenties that I returned to that same Kafka collection and read the introduction, only to finally make the connection and see Borges’ name.  Amazing.
