View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Kafka's classic novel of the terror state, in which profound unease and sinister uncertainty simmer beneath Joseph K.'s surface world of desperate normality and security. When arrested, he is spun into a panic and slowly, strangely, a helpless sense of guilt emerges in him.

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.


A terrifying psychological trip into the life of one Joseph K., an ordinary man who wakes up one day to find himself accused of a crime he did not commit, a crime whose nature is never revealed to him. Once arrested, he is released, but must report to court on a regular basis--an event that proves maddening, as nothing is ever resolved. As he grows more uncertain of his fate, his personal life--including work at a bank and his relations with his landlady and a young woman who lives next door--becomes increasingly unpredictable. As K. tries to gain control, he succeeds only in accelerating his own excruciating downward spiral.
