about this book

This collection brings together all of Kafka's stories, form the classic tales such as "The Metamorphosis," "In the Penal Colony," and "A Hunger Artist," to shorter pieces and fragments that Max Brod, Kafka's literary executor, released after Kafka's death. With the exception of his three novels, the whole of Kafka's narrative work is included in this volume. With a forword by John Updike; translators include Hannah Arendt, Jurgen Born, Max Brod, Nahum Glatzer, Martin Greenberg, Willy Haas, Erich Heller, Ernst Kaiser, Eithne Wilkins, Joseph Kresh, Willa and Edwin Muir, Heinz Politzer, Hans Joachim Schoeps, and Tania Stern.

"An imporant book, valuable in itself and absolutely fascinating. The stories are dreamlike, allegorical, symbolic, parabolic, grotesque, ritualistic...and prophetic."--The New York Times
