A Master of Modernism

Oxford University Press are in the process of publishing new translations of Kafka. We reviewed Metamorphosis and The Castle last year. Now comes The Hunger Artist and Other Stories which combines some of his best-known short stories (Investigations of a Dog, The Great Wall of China, The Burrow, and The Judgement) with some of his quasi-philosophic aphorisms and earliest journalism. It makes a selection ideally suitable for readers who have not tackled this enigmatic  and completely original writer before.
The full review is here.
