The Metamorphosis is a classic story written by the late, great Kafka. The story follows the changing of a man into an an insect / bug but while hints are given it is never clear what new species he takes on. This story greatly delves into how we perceive the world and how important it is for us, that people perceive us a person. This greatly affects how we think, live and move through the world.
Although this is not the first edition cover, this cover primes you for the story beautifully.
