<<And Kafka? Post-WWII existentialist, wasn't he?>>

No, he died in 1924. I strongly recommend everything he wrote. There's never been anyone like him. Nathanael West continued the Kafka tradition, by the way.

<<I understand a little of that, since I went thru a Hermann Hesse period in my teens. Didn't Kafka write a book about a guy turning into a bug? Metamorphosis, maybe.>>

Yes, he did. Kafka and Hesse don't have much in common, though they were both great and they wrote in German (Kafka was actually Czech).
