Summary
"Strange beasts, night terrors, absurd bureaucrats and sinister places abound in this collection of stories by Franz Kafka. Some are less than a page long, others more substantial; all were unpublished in his lifetime. These matchless short works range from the gleeful miniature horror 'Little fable' to the off-kilter humour of 'Investigations of a dog', and from the elaborate waking nightmare of 'Building the Great Wall of China' to the creeping unease of 'The burrow', where a nameless creature's labyrinthine hiding place turns into a trap of fear and paranoia." -- rear cover
