This was my favorite book I read for my World Lit II class. Gregor Samsa and the story his abrupt change stirred me in ways I wasn't expecting. At the end of the semester, my professor asked the class to write a short essay about whatever piece we liked best. This is the work I chose, and I ended up writing the most personal essay I've ever handed in on a college level. I'm not going to share that here on the big bad internet, but I just want to say that this little story had a huge impact on me. I'm now a Kafka fan for life.

Lacey Louwagie You should watch the Home Movies episode where they make a little musical out of Kafka's work; this one seems to be the focus if I remember correctly.

I haven't read it, but I'd be interested in reading your essay if you're willing to share.

Jenna Email it to you I shall.

Lacey Louwagie Thanks! Just got it. Hope I can read it this weekend. :)

Jenna It's only 570 words, man. You can read it in less than the time it takes to pee.
