A review of the book, Franz Kafka, the Jewish Patient by Sander Gilman is presented. In this book, Gilman seeks to place Franz Kafka's life and work in the context of prevailing notions about Jews and Jewishness in turn-of-the-century Europe. The book is not a reading of Kafka's oeuvre as such but rather “a small attempt to see what is unobscured or only partially masked” in Kafka's fictions as they engage and reflect three overlapping and influential contemporary discourses that defined Jewishness: race, gender and disease.

Keywords:   Franz Kafka, Jews, race, gender, disease, Jewishness
