About the Author

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was a Czech-born German-speaking insurance clerk who despised his job, preferring to spend his time writing. Nevertheless, Kafka published little during his lifetime, and ordered his closest friend to burn the mass of unpublished manuscripts - now familiar to us as some of the most influential novels and short stories of the twentieth century - after his death. Kafka's novels, all available in Penguin Modern Classics, include The Trial, The Castle, and Amerika.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

23 May, 2021
This book was great. However, there is no deeper meaning to it; it was just about Franz Kafka's desires to be a large bug. Its not that deep. It is not a existential, anti-capitalist story nor a reflection of Kafka's trauma. He just wants to be a bug, and so do I.
