Published a year after Kafka's death, The Trial is the story of a bank employee arrested for a charge which he has no possibility of defending himself against. The book is a terrifying depiction of overwhelming bureaucracy, sprinkled with Kafka's signature dark humor. This edition has been translated and prefaced by Breon Mitchell.
