Let R.Crumb be your guide in this illustrated guide through the mind and works of Franz Kafka. "What do I have in common with the Jews? I don't even have anything in common with myself."Nothing could better express the essence of Franz Kafka, a man described by his friends as living behind a "glass wall." Kafka wrote in the tradition of the great Yiddish storytellers, whose stock-in-trade was bizarre fantasy tainted with hilarity and self-abasement. What he added to this tradition was an almost unbearably expanded consciousness. Alienated from his roots, his family, his surroundings, and primarily from his own body, Kafka created a unique literary language in which to hide away, transforming himself into a cockroach, an ape, a dog, a mole or a circus artiste who starves himself to death in front of admiring crowds. David Zane Mairowitz's brilliant text and the illustrations and comic panels of the world's greatest cartoonist, Robert Crumb (himself no stranger to self-loathing and alienation), help us to understand the essence of Kafka and provide insight beyond the cliché "Kafkaesque," peering through Kafka's glass wall like no other book before it. The book is a wonderful educational tool for those unfamiliar with Kafka, including a brief but inclusive biography as well as the plots of many of his works, all illustrated by Crumb, making this newly designed edition a must-have for admirers of both Kafka and Crumb.

Robert Crumb was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 30, 1943. In 1962, he worked for the American Greetings Corporation. He first worked as a color separator before getting promoted to an illustrator position. He entered the public eye as an underground cartoonist during the late 1960s as the creator of Zap Comix. He created such characters as Fritz the Cat, Angelfood McSpade and Mr. Natural. He created cover art for Big Brother and the Holding Company's Cheap Thrills album. His numerous collections include Weirdo, Black and White, Big Ass Comics, People's Comics, Dirty Laundry Comics, The Crumb Family Comics, The R. Crumb Handbook, and The Book of Genesis.
