"Before the Law" by Franz Kafka

Is life but one long wait? Are we all being deceived? Is there such a thing as actual justice? Listen and decide. Translated from the German by Willa and Edmund Muir and read by Scoot.

Franz Kafka's enigmatic parables, stories, and novels could hardly be described here, but one should seek out more from this author who reinvented storytelling in a post-Freudian and war-torn twentieth century. "The Metamorphosis" is the story you probably had to read in high school or college, but it's much funnier than you might remember.

Perhaps this is really about Kafka's relationship with his father...the rest is just commentary.
