In the end, out of nothing at all, an enormous fabric of guilt will be conjured up.

One morning Josef K. is arrested for a crime he did not commit. In fact, he is never even told the nature of the offence. His life is thrown into turmoil as he becomes enmeshed in a struggle to prove his innocence. As the confounding case unfolds, K. is ultimately powerless - battling against a remote and uncaring bureaucracy.

Filled with psychological tension and disconcerting parallels with the modern world, The Trial is a dystopian masterpiece by one of Germany's greatest writers.

This new translation by Isabel Tucker brings one of the greatest works of modern literature to a wider audience.

From the Author:

Born into a middle-class Jewish family in Prague, Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century - his name has become a byword for alienation and guilt - and his work is both harrowing and humorous, featuring individuals caught up in an impersonal and bureaucratic world over which they have increasingly little power.

Isabel Tucker studied French and German at Oxford University and Kings College London. After several years teaching Modern Languages, she moved into publishing and now works as a freelance editor and translator.

Book Description:

One morning Josef K. is arrested for a crime he did not commit. As he struggles to prove his innocence, K. confronts his own powerlessness in the face of a remote and uncaring bureaucracy. This dystopian masterpiece by Kafka will leave you stunned.
