About this book
Kafka's first and funniest novel, reissued in PMC to coincide with the publication of the new translation of "Metamorphosis".
Karl Rossman has been banished by his parents to America, following a family scandal. There, with unquenchable optimism, he throws himself into the strange experiences that lie before him as he slowly makes his way into the interior of the great continent. This novel can be read as an allegory of modern life.
