Metamorphosis: What on Earth Happened to Me? by Franz Kafka
Metamorphosis tells the tale of Gregor Samsa, a young salesman, who wakes up one day to find he has turned into "a kind of giant bug". Samsa has been a model of virtue for years, single-handedly supporting his parents and sister, but suddenly he finds himself an outcast in his own home, facing a world in which he no longer has a place.
Elias Canetti described it as "one of the few great and perfect works of the poetic imagination written". The Metamorphosis remains one of the best works of fiction in history. The Metamorphosis is the story of a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who wakes up to find himself being transformed to an insect-like creature and the story unfolds into one of the greatest short fiction stories ever written.
