Description

A collection of brand-new short stories written by prize-winning, bestselling writers and inspired by Kafka - to commemorate one hundred years since his death

Franz Kafka is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most enigmatic geniuses of European literature.

What happens when his idiosyncratic imagination meets some of the greatest literary minds writing in English across the globe today? From a future society who ask their AI servants to construct a giant tower to reach God; to a flat hunt that descends into a comically absurd bureaucratic nightmare; to a population experiencing a wave of unbearable, contagious panic attacks, these ten specially commissioned stories are by turns mind-bending, funny, unsettling and haunting. Inspired by a twentieth-century visionary, they speak powerfully to the strangeness of being alive today.
