About the Author

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was born of Jewish parents in Prague. Several of his story collections were published in his lifetime and his novels, The Trial, The Castle, and Amerika, were published posthumously by his editor Max Brod. Susan Bernofsky is the acclaimed translator of Hermann Hesse, Robert Walser, and Jenny Erpenbeck, and the recipient of many awards, including the Helen and Kurt Wolff Prize and the Hermann Hesse Translation Prize. She teaches literary translation at Columbia University and lives in New York.


"Bernofsky's vibrant new translation preserves the comedy as well as the tragedy of Kafka's text; it convinces both on its own and when read with the original in mind." -- Times Literary Supplement
"...brilliant edition of Kafka's novella...prepare to be pleasantly surprised here as Susan Bernofsky's brilliant translation brings out Kafka's sharp wit." -- The Indpendent
