How many writers get their own adjective? The work of this terminally alienated master narrator of the subconscious demanded a new descriptor; I guess they gave up and just settled on 'Kafkaesque'. But if you ever wonder what the original Kafkaesque work was, take a look here. The book contains all of Kafka's short and longer stories – everything but his three novels. Most of these stories weren't even published during the author's lifetime. The widely-anthologized The Metamorphosis is here, wherein Gregor Samsa awakes from uneasy dreams to find himself insectoidally transformed, as are equally lovely pieces like A Hunger Artist, A Country Doctor and A Little Woman. The only available collection that brings together all of Kafka's stories – those published during his lifetime and those released after his death.
