    Ein Hungerkünstler by Franz Kafka is short and somewhat gruesome. Only about 10 pages too.

  3. Good grief - spent the last ten minutes with my evening cuppa, reading that Franz Kafka. That was a laugh a minute. Jeez. Gruesome doesn't come near!!!

    Did it make you reach for the biscuit barrel? :) I've read the summary and it looks fascinating-will read it in bed tonight. You couldn't make that topic up really could you?
     
  5. Hahah, you have to love Franz Kafka. I ADORE the story I was told once which is true - his diary entry on the day Germany invaded Russia read "Germany has declared war on Russia ? swimming in the afternoon."

    I guess he's not going to be a bundle of laughs all round, is he?!!
