In 1920 Kafka began an intense relationship with Milena Jesenská , a Czech journalist and writer. His letters to her were later published as Letters to Milena .  During a vacation in July 1923 to Graal-Müritz on the Baltic Sea , Kafka met Dora Diamant , a 25-year-old kindergarten teacher from an orthodox Jewish family. Kafka, hoping to escape the influence of his family to concentrate on his writing, moved briefly to Berlin and lived with Diamant. She became his lover and caused him to become interested in the Talmud .  He worked on four stories, which he prepared to be published as Ein Hungerkünstler ( A Hunger Artist ).

Tavecchio didn’t even look that bad when an opponent treated him like a hurdle yesterday.
