The Trial (Penguin Modern Classics)
Kafka’s gripping work of psychological horror. A terrifying psychological trip into the life of one Joseph K, an ordinary man who wakes up one day to find himself accused of a crime he did not commit, a crime whose nature is never revealed to him. Once arrested, he is released but must report to court on a regular basis, an event that proves maddening, as nothing is ever resolved. As he grows more uncertain of his fate, his personal life, including work at a bank and his relations with his landlady and a young woman who lives next door, becomes increasingly unpredictable. As Joseph tries to gain control, he succeeds only in accelerating his own excruciating downward spiral.

Birthday Girl
She waited on tables as usual that day, her twentieth birthday. She always worked Fridays, but if things had gone according to plan on that particular Friday, she would have had the night off. One rainy Tokyo night, a waitress?s uneventful twentieth birthday takes a strange and fateful turn when she?s asked to deliver dinner to the restaurant?s reclusive owner. Birthday Girl is a beguiling, exquisitely satisfying taste of master storytelling, published to celebrate Murakami?s 70th birthday.Birthday Girl is also available in Birthday Stories and Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.
