What other readers are saying about this title:
Savoy Truffle said:
A worthy revisit of the plight of Gregor Samsa from a postmodernist perspective. In a unique and brilliant inspiration, Lance Olsen shifts perspective in each chapter to include the voices of Gregor’s mother, sister, boss and cook (among others: a would-be author downstairs who may be the young Kafka himself, and a young woman in contemporary London reading "The Metamorphosis" for a university class assignment.) Highly recommended!

Hates his job; his family's sole breadwinner; provided his parents and sisters with comfortable lives; dreamt of sending his sister to study violin; awakes one morning to find himself transformed into a bug; torn between his human wants and emotions and his insect needs.
Insecure; reading Kafka's The Metamorphosis; grandparents are missing.
