Summary (From the publisher):

Mystery, horror, comedy, speculation, paradox, political allegory, nightmare: all these things are Kafka. In the decades since his death in obscurity in 1924, the works of Franz Kafka have grown in power and influence. Several generations of writers and artists have drawn from the well he opened. Kafkaesque presents a broad range of the most imaginative work that has made his name a commonplace even among people who have never read a word of his fiction.
