“Is it my imagination, or is it getting crowded in here?”

In this delightful first episode of season 2 of Literary Punk, a couple of local literary imposters discuss Franz Kafka’s 1915 novella, The Metamorphosis, as the source of the modern sitcom.


Pile into the stateroom on the Punk Ship Hookturn with me and podcaster/producer, Josh Kinal, as we get intimate with fellow stowaways: Franz Kafka and his ungeheuren Ungeziefer, Marx, The Marx Brothers, 3 lodgers, a charwoman, a sobbing sister, Ben Jonson, Larry David, a chief clerk, our parents, our grandparents, and a room service guy delivering some hard-boiled eggs – amongst others.
