A happy birthday shout-out goes to Franz Kafka who was born on this day in 1883. Boy, Franz, you sure knew how to make everyone depressed.
He is, of course, famous for writing The Trial, The Castle and The Metamorphosis, among others.
You know what else he was good at? Creating a genre descriptor of himself: “Sure is Kafkaesque.”
So celebrate his birthday by reading a story of his, OR become mired in some brainless bureaucracy downtown.
