Metamorphosis by Peter Kuper
Book DescriptionAcclaimed graphic artist Peter Kuper presents a brilliant, darkly comic remaining of Kafka's classic tale of family, alienation, and a giant bug. Kuper's electric drawings - which merge American cartooning with German expressionism - bring Kafka's prose to vivid life, reviving the original story's humour and poignancy in a way that will surprise and delight readers of Kafka and graphic novels alike.

Author Biography - Peter Kuper
FRANZ KAFKA was born in Prague in 1883. Although his passion was for writing, it never served as a livelihood and only a handful of his stories were published before he died of tuberculosis at the age of forty. Though largely unknown during his lifetime, he has come to be regarded as one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. His short story The Metamorphosis, originally written in German in 1915, is considered to be his masterpiece.PETER KUPER'S fascination with entomology began at the age of five but was supplanted by his discovery of comic books several years later. Thanks to Franz Kafka, Kuper no longer has to choose between the two. His comics and illustrations appear regularly in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Mad, for which he draws Spy vs Spy every month. Give It Up!, his first collection of Kafka adaptations, was published in 1995."
