Description

Long fascinated with the work of Franz Kafka, Peter Kuper began illustrating his stories in 1988.

Initially drawn to the master’s dark humour, Kuper adapted the stories over the years to plumb their deeper truths. Working from new translations of the classic texts, Kuper has re-imagined these iconic stories for the twenty-first century, using setting and perspective to comment on contemporary issues.

Long-time lovers of Kafka will appreciate Kuper’s innovative interpretations, while Kafka novices will discover a haunting introduction to some of the great writer’s most beguiling stories. Kafkaesque stands somewhere between adaptation and wholly original creation, going beyond a simple illustration of Kafka’s words to become a stunning work of art.
