America tells the story of Karl Rossmann, a young innocent in America, banished there by his father because he had been seduced by a servant girl. In America his key obsessions appear and reappear; his desire to avoid power by transforming himself into something small or disappearing altogether, and his belief in the infinite ambiguity of life and art. The gaps in the novel are unimportant - had Kafka filled them we would simply have begun to notice other gaps elsewhere.
