The Complete Stories brings together all of Kafkas stories, from the classic tales such as "The Metamorphosis," "In the Penal Colony," and "A Hunger Artist" to shorter pieces and fragments that Max Brod, Kafkas literary executor, released after Kafkas death. With the exception of his three novels, the whole of Kafkas narrative work is included in this volume.
from the Foreword by John Updike
"The distinction Kafka, or his heroes, draw between this world and the world does not imply that there are two different worlds, only that our habitual conceptions of reality are not the true conception."
W. H. Auden
"An important book, valuable in itself and absolutely fascinating. The stories are dreamlike, allegorical, symbolic, parabolic, grotesque, ritualistic, nasty, lucent, extremely personal, ghoulishly detached, exquisitely comic, numinous, and prophetic."
The New York Times
