Investigations of a Dog: And Other Creatures
Some of Kafka’s most fantastical and visionary short fiction is now available in a new masterful translation by Michael Hofmann.
Animals, strange beasts, bureaucrats, businessmen, and nightmares populate this collection of stories by Franz Kafka.
These matchless short works, all unpublished during Kafka’s lifetime, range from the gleeful dialogue between a cat and a mouse in “Little Fable” to the absurd humor of “Investigations of a Dog,” from the elaborate waking nightmare of “Building the Great Wall of China” to the creeping unease of “The Burrow,” where a nameless creature’s labyrinthine hiding place turns into a trap of fear and paranoia.
