**Named by School Library Journal as one of the Best Adult Books for High School Students, 2003
A brilliant, darkly comic reimagining of Kafka’s classic tale of family, alienation, and a giant bug.
Acclaimed graphic artist Peter Kuper presents a kinetic illustrated adaptation of Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Kuper’s electric drawings—where American cartooning meets German expressionism—bring Kafka’s prose to vivid life, reviving the original story’s humor and poignancy in a way that will surprise and delight readers of Kafka and graphic novels alike.
"...a faithful and compelling adaptation....[Kuper] ably draws out both the horrific and the humorous elements of the story in his black-and-white scratchboard illustrations, which are cartoonish and expressionistic, with heavily detailed backgrounds. This book can act as an excellent introduction to the original....Recommended...." —Library Journal
