When the famous writer Franz Kafka died in 1924, he told his best friend Max Brod to burn all his work. The writings weren't burned, but some have been embroiled in a decades-long legal battle. Now, thanks to a recent decision by a court in Zurich, a trove of unpublished works could be revealed at last. Marco Werman has the story.
