The Trial

Cover of The Trial.

I don’t do well with Kafka, and this one was no exception. I’m not debating the quality or skill of execution, it’s just that Kafka makes me feel truly terrible in a way that I don’t care to introduce artificially if I can avoid it.

I remember sitting in school during breaks and reading this and suddenly feeling that my entire future could only be like this, that this was all there ever could be. Shudders.
