First published in German in 1915 and cited as one of the 20th century's seminal works of fiction, Franz Kafka's novella is studied in colleges and universities across the Western world. The book is presented here in its Pulp! The Classics edition, with witty cover art that casts it in an intriguing new light, though the text is purely Kafka's. From the back cover: "Poor old Gregor—change really bugged him. One day he's depressed about his dreary travelling salesman gig, the next, he's roaching around the apartment and disgusting his family. All that's left is creeping the walls and eating garbage. How's his sis ever going to find a sugar daddy with her grotty bro in tow?"
