Well told classic Kafka short story

Bleak and insightful. Good narration. If you like Kafka it's worth your time. Written in 1922, Kafka narrates the story of a hunger artist who makes his living by being on display in a cage while he fasts for 40 days.

Kafkaesque

Kafka is uncomfortable read but curiosity always brings me back to him. Peculiar man indeed.
