Did You Know?
The quote that Walon gives Bubbles to read is aphorism 104 from The Zurau Aphorisms by Franz Kafka. The aphorisms were taken from a diary that Kafka kept while recovering from tuberculosis. They were only collected and published after his death. Kafka was staying at his sister's house when he wrote the aphorisms, reflecting Bubbles' living arrangements in his sister's basement. See more
