With a Foreword by Anne Rice; translated by Willa and Edwin Muir. This collection brings together the stories that Kafka allowed to be published during his lifetime. To Max Brod, his literary executor, he wrote: "Of all my writings the only books that can stand are these...Should they disappear altogether that would please me best. Only, since they do exist, I do not wish to hinder anyone who may want to, from keeping them." Included here are: Meditation, The Judgment, The Metamorphosis, A Country Doctor, In the Penal Colony, A Hunger Artist, and an Appendix which includes "First Long Train Journey" by Max Brod and Kafka, "The Aeroplanes at Brescia," "Three Critical Pieces," and an Epilogue by Max Brod.
