Overview
One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that he had been changed into an adorable kitten.
Thus begins The Meowmorphosis a bold, startling, and fuzzy-wuzzy new edition of Franz Kafka s classic nightmare tale, from the publishers of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Meet Gregor Samsa, a humble young man who works as a fabric salesman to support his parents and sister. His life goes strangely awry when he wakes up late for work and finds that, inexplicably, he is now a man-sized baby kitten. His family freaks out: Yes, their son is OMG so cute, but what good is cute when there are bills piling up? And how can he expect them to serve him meals every day? If Gregor is to survive this bizarre, bewhiskered ordeal, he ll have to achieve what he never could before escape from his parents house. Complete with haunting illustrations and a provocative biographical expose of Kafka s own secret feline life, The Meowmorphosis will take you on a journey deep into the tortured soul of the domestic tabby."

Gregor Samsa wakes up as an adorable kitten, and Kafka's famously surreal story becomes even more brain breaking. Samsa's fate is especially poignant, and his family's treatment of him is all the more inhumane, now that he's cute and furry. Cook (a pseudonym for a popular fantasy author) creatively draws from Kafka's other works to pad the original short tale to novel length. With a biographical note alleging that Kafka was stalked all his life by sinister cats until he became obsessed with them, and a plot that weaves in a new narrative about a group of formerly human cats who run a nonsensical and arbitrary court, the book seems like an artifact from a peculiar and troubling alternate universe. Jane Austen mashup fans won't know what to do with this one, but it's highly recommended for connoisseurs of the bizarre. (May)
