Max Brod – a plea

I’ve been reading some Kafka and Kafka related material and in doing so it is inevitable that you come across the name Max Brod.  I was intrigued by the line that “Brod saved Kafka’s manuscripts from destruction not once but twice: the first time by disobeying Kafka’s instructions that they be burdened “unread and to the last page” after his death, the second time in 1939, when Prague was occupied by Hitler’s forces and he fled to Tel Aviv bearing the papers with him.” (Coetzee, Stranger Shores p 96).  There is of course a wealth of Kafka related work but I wondered if anyone could recommend something on Brod himself.  Any suggestions gratefully received.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
