It is 1908, and Max Brod is the rising star of Prague's literary world. But when a rival appears on the scene, Max discovers how quickly he can lose everything he has worked so hard to attain. The Lost Pages is a richly reimagined story of Max Brod's life filtered through his relationship with Franz Kafka. In this inspired novel of friendship, fraud, madness and betrayal, Marija Pericic writes vividly and compellingly of an extraordinary literary rivalry.
The Lost Pages is the outstanding and breath-taking winner of The Australian/Vogel's Literary Award - Australia's most prestigious prize for an unpublished manuscript.
"From the very beginning, the strain between Kafka and Brod is hugely entertaining." (Rohan Wilson, award-winning author of The Roving Party and To Name Those Lost)

A wonderfull book! Such a beautiful piece of writing.
In this world of 5 second fame and tack, it was so reassuring to settle down into the words of The Lost Pages. An amazing first novel, it felt like a classic that I can't wait to read again soon.
