When writer-extraordinaire, Franz Kafka, died in 1924 (from tuberculosis) at the age of 40, it was very fortunate for us all that his good friend, Max Brod, went against Kafka's wishes (which were stated in his Will) that he wanted all of his manuscripts burned in the event of his death.

Had Brod complied with this request of Kafka's, then the world would've been greatly deprived of reading some of the most amazingly thoughtful stories ever written.

Born in Austria on July 3, 1883, Franz Kafka (who had originally trained to be a lawyer) was a tremendously gifted writer. He is widely regarded as being one of the most influential authors of the 20th Century.

A troubled, insecure and very complicated man, it wasn't until his unfortunate death that Kafka finally earned the fame and recognition that he so rightly deserved.

Kafka was a man of a profoundly brilliant mind. His wonderful stories are filled with themes of alienation, psychological brutality, and conflicts within the labyrinths of bureaucracy.

This first-rate volume of 486 pages contains all 75 collected stories of Kafka's , including "In The Penal Colony", "The Judgement" and "A Hunger Artist".
