The Metamorphosis & Other Stories – Franz Kafka



Chosen by Rachel

Gregor Samsa awakens one morning to discover he has turned into a giant insect, in this 1915 novella. An establishing story in the existentialism genre.

“I am sure I should have read Kakfa before now! His stories make so much contemporary literature make sense. As I read The Metamorphosis I realised I am not only indebted to Kafka for his own brilliant fiction but for the influence he’s had on many celebrated modern writers. The stories in themselves are crazy and ask you as the reader to be willing to accept impossible possibilities and if you can do this, these stories are extraordinary. I immediately read more of his work following this bookclub meet.” – Rachel
