The first and most charming of Kafka’s three great novels is given full justice in this new translation that returns to the manuscript version of the book.

ISBN: 9780241197813 Author: Kafka, Franz Publisher: Penguin Classics Publication Date: 2nd July 2015 Imprint: Penguin Classics Cover: Paperback Dewey: 833.912 (edition:23) Pages: xiii, 234 Language: English Readership: General - Trade / Code: K Category: Subject:

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.

Kafka’s first novel (begun in 1911 and never finished) is infused with a quite un-Kafkaesque blitheness and sunniness, brought to life in this lyrical translation that returns to the original manuscript of the book.
