Writing in the first three decades of the twentieth century, Franz Kafka explored the themes of alienation, anxiety, and solitude in works that were often surreally fantastic. The Metamorphosis and Other Stories collects more than 30 of Kafka's best-known tales in a new translation. They include "The Metamorphosis," "In the Penal Colony," "The Hunger Artist," "A Country Doctor," and "A Report to an Academy."

While the printing quality is good and I would like to add some Franz Kafka to my library, I don't like the "flexi-format" cover, which feels more like a rubber coating than bonded leather. At least the pocket-sized books with their flexible covers feel like leather - these do not.

The book itself is quite nice but -1 star because its advertised as 'hardcover' when this is one of the flexibound softcover books
