A stunning graphic novel adaptation of Franz Kafka's famous story of a man who finds himself transformed into a monstrous cockroach."Darkly appropriate . . . Kuper's work rivals that of Art Spiegelman."--Chicago Sun-Times Acclaimed graphic artist Peter Kuper presents a brilliant, darkly comic reimagining of Kafka's classic tale of family, alienation, and a giant bug. Kuper's electric drawings--which merge American cartooning with 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.
