A celebrated novella by the 'god of bureaucrats', F. Kafka. A tale rich in metaphors and carefully constructed language (those with knowledge of German- this is one to read in the original! Though rest assured, you won't be disappointed in the translation!). This is a short story, so those keen to read more Kafka should pick up a copy of 'The Trial'. We hope this wonderful story piques your philosophical and analytical brain, or, at least, makes you think twice before you squash any bugs....!
