“Susan Bernofsky's new, exacting translation shows just how ingenious the structure of [The Metamorphosis] is, and just how difficult it is to render Kafka's German into English. She succeeds brilliantly, however, with a vivid fidelity to Kafka's vision, driving home the way he makes us at once sympathetic to his anti-hero, Gregor Samsa, and repulsed by him.””
- The Wichita Eagle
“Vibrant . . . preserves the comedy as well as the tragedy of Kafka’s text.”
- Times Literary Supplement
“This is the transforming text for you.”
