Welcome to the carnival world of Kafka. In addition to the title story, in which Gregor Samsa wakes to find himself transformed into a dung beetle, there are smaller stories, sketches and prose poems, depicting Kafka's tragicomic vision. This complex and baffling world is made more accessible to the reader by an excellent new translation, a helpful introduction to the Prague Jewish community of the author, and Recorded Books' own interview with the translator. George Guidall, in his earnest fashion, leaves the listener alone with Kafka. Guidall is a quiet, precise reader, who adopts just the tone needed to convey the absurd madness of this world without letting it become grotesque.
