Para calmar a los angeles pequeña, el autor de los angeles metamorfosis se inventó una extraordinary historia: l. a. muñeca no se había perdido, se había ido de viaje, y él, convertido en cartero de muñecas, tenía una carta que le llevaría al día siguiente al parque. Aquella noche Franz escribió los angeles primera de las muchas cartas que, durante tres semanas, entregó a l. a. niña puntualmente, narrando las peripecias de l. a. extraordinaria muñeca desde todos los rincones del mundo. Según cuenta Dora Dymant, su compañera en aquellos días, el estado febril con el que Kafka escribía esas cartas period related al de cualquiera de sus inmortales obras. Éste es el relato de aquella experiencia, en l. a. que Franz Kafka fue un mago de l. a. palabra para una niña desconocida de l. a. que jamás volvió a saberse nada, como tampoco de aquellas cartas que constituyen uno de los misterios más hermosos de l. a. narrativa del siglo XX.
