Summary :

One of the most important authors of the 20th century, Franz Kafka was a man who lived fully through his work, who attacked with stunning craft and powerful vision the bureaucratic world he hated.

Now, published together for the first time, here are selections from all of Kafka's writings: his longer pieces (“The Metamorphosis,” “Josephine the Singer”), his short stories, parables and his personal diaries and letters. This collection stands as the most complete picture of Kafka ever shown, as one of the most influential writers--and complex men--of our time.
