    Eisner Award-winning artist Peter Kuper recaptures the dark humor underlying Kafka's fiction with these graphic interpretations of a dozen tales - three of which are brand new. Moody, woodcut-style images reminiscent of the German Expressionist style bring a dramatic energy to these evocative adaptations. "The ride from book to comic can be bumpy, [but] Kuper navigates the transition with precision." - The New York Times.

    AUTHOR:
    American alternative comics artist and illustrator Peter Kuper received the 2016 Eisner Award for his graphic novel Ruins. Best known for taking over Mad magazine's long-running Spy vs. Spy cartoon, Kuper has written many graphic novels that have been translated into several languages, and he has drawn hundreds of illustrations for The New York Times and other publications.
    A native of Prague, Franz Kafka (1883–1924) worked for an insurance company by day and wrote his tales of alienation and social anxiety in private. Few of his works made it into print before his untimely death from tuberculosis; fortunately for posterity, Kafka's friend Max Brod preserved the author's writings and oversaw their publication.
