All things considered, I'm the most ordinary guy you could hope to find. So why do these weird things keep happening to me? Weird? Well, ghostly signs in the night, unexplained murders, a psychic teenager who can get vibes from cars, a one-armed, surfing Vietnam vet poet and a Sheep-Man, for example. All centred around the Dolphin Hotel, once a small, but profoundly idiosyncratic establishment, now transformed into a glistening symbol of economic success.

The trial by Franz Kafka( Recording )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The trial is one of the great works of the twentieth century: an extraordinary vision of one man put on trial by an anonymous authority on an unspecified charge. Josef K, 30, lives in a large town in an unspecified country. He is summonsed to answer a charge and appears in the court room for his trial. Franz Kafka evokes all the reality of trial without any of the specifics in a society that seems to have degraded into chaos: squalid environment, rats, yellow liquid shooting out of a hole in the wall. Guards, claustrophobia, anxiety -- this is a gripping story and an allegory of modern life. This text remains just as relevant a century after it was written
