Introduced by John Sutherland
Illustrated by Bill Bragg

'Thank you for the sumptuous edition of The Castle. I'm proud to have a small part in such a lovely volume. The illustrations, as always, enrich immensely.'Unsettling, thought-provoking, yet with frequent ﬂashes of humour, Kafka's novels have left an indelible mark on modern literature.
