Avatar for Savoy Truffle Savoy Truffle said:
A worthy revisit of the plight of Gregor Samsa from a postmodernist perspective. In a unique and brilliant inspiration, Lance Olsen shifts perspective in each chapter to include the voices of Gregor’s mother, sister, boss and cook (among others: a would-be author downstairs who may be the young Kafka himself, and a young woman in contemporary London reading "The Metamorphosis" for a university class assignment.) Highly recommended!
