"Kafka's Last Love" Author Kathi Diamant to Read from and Discuss Her Book at the Central Library on Oct. 20

9/25/2003: (San Diego, CA) - Kathi Diamant, author of "Kafka's Last Love: The Mystery of Dora Diamant," will read from her book on Monday, Oct. 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the third floor auditorium of the Central Library, located at 820 E St. in downtown San Diego. This event is free to the public.

"Kafka's Last Love: The Mystery of Dora Diamant," is a gripping literary detective story that brings to light the amazing woman who captured writer Franz Kafka's heart and kept his literary flame alive for decades. That woman was Dora Diamant, a bright and intrepid Polish Jewish refugee who fled her Orthodox family. She met Kafka by the Baltic Sea, and it was love at first sight, although Kafka was already gravely ill with the tuberculosis that killed him just a year later. Along with her husband and daughter, Dora fled Hitler's Germany only to meet with disaster in Moscow. Resilient and resourceful, she found sanctuary in England, but she never stopped thinking about Kafka, her true love, and never stopped mourning the loss of her secret cache of his writings. Confiscated by the Gestapo, they may never be recovered, but Kathi's reclaiming of Dora Diamant's extraordinary spirit has brought many other treasures to light.

The Friends of the Central Library and Wahrenbrock's Book House will have copies of "Kafka's Last Love: The Mystery of Dora Diamant" available for purchase and signing following the event.

Kathi Diamant is director of the Kafka Project and adjunct professor at San Diego State University.
