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.

"I think of a Kafka story as a perfect work of literary art, as approachable as it is strange, and as strange as it is approachable."
-Michael Hofmann
