Animals,strange beasts, bureaucrats, businessmen, and nightmares populate thiscollection of stories by Franz Kafka. These matchless short works, allunpublished during Kafka’s lifetime, range from the gleeful dialogue between acat and a mouse in “Little Fable” to the absurd humor of “Investigations of aDog,” from the elaborate waking nightmare of “Building the Great Wall of China”to the creeping unease of “The Burrow,” where a nameless creature’slabyrinthine hiding place turns into a trap of fear and paranoia.
