""Lambent Traces" is a stunning work of literary scholarship and critical thought, a brilliant engagement with one of the towering literary figures of the last century. Corngold is today's master reader of Kafka."--Russell Berman, Stanford University
"A new book on Kafka by a scholar as formidable as Stanley Corngold is a welcome event. Corngold's writing exerts the allure of the tight-rope walker high above the circus floor and makes for fascinating reading."--Mark Anderson, Columbia University
