About the Author:

Franz Kafka (1883–1924) was one of the most important writers of the twentieth century. His major novels include The Trial, The Castle, and Amerika.

Review:

“Distinguishes itself from previous translations in its first sentence.”
- Slate

“Susan Bernofsky's new, exacting translation shows just how ingenious the structure of [The Metamorphosis] is, and just how difficult it is to render Kafka's German into English. She succeeds brilliantly, however, with a vivid fidelity to Kafka's vision, driving home the way he makes us at once sympathetic to his anti-hero, Gregor Samsa, and repulsed by him.””
- The Wichita Eagle

“Vibrant . . . preserves the comedy as well as the tragedy of Kafka’s text.”
- Times Literary Supplement

“This is the transforming text for you.”
- Richard Howard
