Welcome to Paperback by The Open Library Project.
We have as our guest today, Nikhil Katara. Nikhil is the Creative Director of Readings in the Shed.
In the first half of the episode, we discuss the writings of Vijay Tendulkar. We also discuss absurd creative non-fiction, existentialism and what came to be known as Kafkaesque.
In the second half, we discuss a few memorable short stories by Franz Kafka, as well as his heartbreaking A letter to father, one of the 1500 letters he wrote in his lifetime. We also discuss Shylock's monologue from Merchant of Venice and the implications of being born a jew.
