Publisher Comments:

For the 125th anniversary of Kafka's birth, an astonishing new translation of his best-known stories, in a spectacular graphic package

For all his fame, Franz Kafka published only a small number of stories in his lifetime. This new translation of those stories, by Michael Hofmann, one of the most respected German-to-English translators at work today, makes Kafka's best-known works available to a new generation of readers. Metamorphosis gives full expression to the breadth of Kafka's literary vision and the extraordinary depth of his imagination.

Synopsis:

For the 125th anniversary of Kafka's birth comes an astonishing new translation of his best-known stories, in a spectacular graphic package.

About the Author

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was a Czech-born German-speaking writer, best known for the story "Metamorphosis" and three posthumously published novels, The Trial, The Castle, and Amerika.

Michael Hofmann is an award-wining translator as well as a poet. He has translated Kafka's Amerika, Thomas Bernhard's Frost, and six books by Joseph Roth.

Sammy Harkham is the cartoonist behind Crickets and Kramers Ergot.
