Review:
" Kafka' s stoic Euro-alienation meets and merges with Kuper' s thoroughly American rock and roll alienation." -- Jules Feiffer
" The ride from book to comic can be bumpy. Mr. Kuper navigates the transition with precision." -- New York Times
" Kafka' s anguished archetypal characters are easily rendered into visual equivalents and given new life in Kuper' s raw, expressionistic graphic style." -- Publishers Weekly
" Darkly appropriate . . . Kuper' s work rivals that of Art Spiegelman." -- Chicago Sun-Times
" Bubbling beneath the surface is a caustic batch of black humor that is as much unsettling as it is absurd. This is the magic of Kafka. And Kuper gives it a postmodern edge here, with an intriguing dance of picture and text." -- Gannett News Service
" Kuper' s scratchboard style . . . is reminiscent of the German expressionist artists . . . and his cartoony approach accentuates Kafka' s dark humor." -- Booklist

About the Author:
Franz Kafka (3 July 1883 – 3 June 1924) was a German-language novelist and short story writer, widely regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature. His work, which fuses elements of realism and the fantastic, typically features isolated protagonists faced by bizarre or surrealistic predicaments and incomprehensible social-bureaucratic powers, and has been interpreted as exploring themes of alienation, existential anxiety, guilt, and absurdity His best known works include "Die Verwandlung" ("The Metamorphosis"), Der Process (The Trial), and Das Schloss (The Castle). The term Kafkaesque has entered the English language to describe situations like those in his writing.
