The complete short stories of the 20th century's greatest visionary
'Kafka is important to us because his predicament is the predicament of modern man' W. H. Auden
This volume contains all of Kafka's shorter fiction, from fragments, parables and sketches to longer tales. Together they reveal the breadth of Kafka's literary vision and the extraordinary imaginative depth of his thought. Some are well known, others are mere jottings, observations of daily life, given artistic form through Kafka's unique perception of the world.
