Books By Author Franz Kafka

Metamorfosis by Franz Kafka Metamorfosis, Hardback (September 2016)

This is a short novel by Franz Kafka, first published in 1915. It is often cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is widely studied in colleges and universities across the western world. The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who wakes to find himself transformed into an insect.

Hunger Artist by Franz Kafka Hunger Artist, Paperback / softback (June 2016)

"A Hunger Artist" tells the story of a performance artist whose artwork is hunger: public fasting in a cage, before gawking throngs who believe, somehow, that he is a fake. As public interest in Hunger Artists fades, the protagonist takes his talent in new and dangerous directions. A classic story by the author of "The Metamorphosis."

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Kafka's great allegory (originally published, posthumously, in 1926) of a supposed surveyor adrift in a "castle," which may be no more than a collection of random buildings, memorably expresses his distinctive vision of a formless and secretive world that frustrates our efforts to comprehend it. This compulsively readable new translation, based on a text "restored" from the author's original manuscript, labors to replace the standard English version (by Willa and Edwin Muir) that had "tone[d] down Kafka's ominousness" and "normalized" his deliberately eccentric syntax and punctuation. In either translation, The Castle is a major modern symbolist work, and it's good to have it in print once again. (Kirkus Reviews)
