Kafka and the Traveling Doll (Kafka y la muñeca viajera)

A little girl loses her doll and Kafka convinces her that it’s on vacation.

A year before his death, Franz Kafka lived a very unusual experience. Strolling through Steglitz Park in Berlin, he found a little girl crying inconsolably: she had lost her doll. To reassure the little girl, the author of The Metamorphosis invented a peculiar story: the doll was not lost, it had gone on a trip, and he, who had become a doll letter carrier, had a letter to take her to the park the next day. That night, Franz wrote the first of many letters which, for three weeks, he delivered to the girl punctually, narrating the adventures of the extraordinary doll from all corners of the world.

This is the story of that experience, in which Franz Kafka was a magician of words for an anonymous girl who was never heard of again, as well as those letters that constitute one of the most beautiful mysteries of twentieth century narrative. Kafka died shortly after of tuberculosis.
