Franz Kafka, the Jewish writer from Prague, who wrote in German, grew up after the Emancipation at a time when most Jews in Central and Western Europe suffered from an identity crisis. The most prominent characteristic of the experience of this generation of young people was hybridism, a kind of partial assimilation that brought them to a dead-end. In Franz Kafka: A Question of Jewish Identity, Sara Loeb examines this complex dialectic, focusing on the question of if, how, and to what extent Kafkas works reflect the identity crisis he suffered.

She offers a new perspective of his life through an encounter between the points of view of two well-known critics: Max Brod, Kafkas close friend, and Marthe Rober, a literary critic who translated Kafkas works into French. Each seeks to examine, in a different way, the source of Kafkas link to his Jewishness. Loeb opens a window to Kafkas inner world, and examines the man and his work from a new perspective.
