The Unhappiness of Being a Single Man: Essential Stories

SKU: BODS-102610

A new translation of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers.

No one has encapsulated the modern experience, its untamed fantasies, its anxieties and mundanity, more adeptly than Franz Kafka. His perspective, with its nonsensicality and macabre humour, retains its potency and significance even in the present day. This anthology of short stories, curated and translated by Alexander Starritt, illuminates Kafka's brilliance.

Within The Unhappiness of Being a Single Man, find a collection of thought-provoking stories that combine portrayals of violence and justice with subtle humour. These pieces, which highlight Franz Kafka's unparalleled creativity, capture the essence of his renowned short stories and reveal a writer capable of humorously depicting the deepest truths.
