A brand-new translation of one of the most popular classics of all time, presented along with rarer Kafka stories

When the young salesman Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning transformed into a monstrous insect, his shock and incomprehension are coupled with the panic of being late for work and having to reveal his appearance to family and colleagues. Although over the following weeks he gradually becomes used to this new existence confined within the bounds of the apartment, and his parents and sister adapt to living with a grotesque bug, Gregor notices that their attitudes towards him are changing and he feels increasingly alienated. One of the masterpieces of 20th-century world literature, "The Metamorphosis" is accompanied in this volume by a selection of other classic tales and sketches by Kafka-such as 'The Judgement," "In the Penal Colony," and "A Country Doctor"-all presented in a lively and meticulous new translation, along with pictures and an extensive section on Kafka's life and works.
