The Unhappiness of Being a Single Man: Essential Stories

Kafka, Franz, Starritt, Alexander, Moreau, Laurent
Format: Paperback
Published: October 25, 2018
ISBN: 9781782274391
192 pages


New translation of the best stories by one of the twentieth century’s greatest and most influential writers. No one has captures the modern experience, its wild dreams, strange joys, its neuroses and boredom, better than Franz Kafka. His vision, with its absurdity and twisted humour, has lost none of its force or relevance today. This  collection,  selected and translated by Alexander Starritt, casts fresh light on Kafka’s genius. Alongside brutal depictions of violence and justice are jokes and deceptively slight, mysterious fables. These pieces reflect the brilliance at the core of Franz Kafka, arguably most fully expressed within his short stories.
