The Meowmorphosis Book Trailer Released

Quirk Books has unveiled the book trailer for their latest literary mash-up, The Metamorphosis. What do you think?

The book will tackle Franz Kafka‘s classic about a man who wakes up as a giant bug. The hero of the The Metamorphosis mash-up will wake up as “an adorable kitten” instead. If you want to read the unspoiled original, Project Gutenberg has a free eBook version.

The trailer also reveals how much the remix altered the original: “[Gregor Samsa] is a humble young man who supports his unemployed parents and teenage sister by working as a traveling fabric salesman. But his life goes strangely wrong in the very first sentence of The Meowmorphosis, when he wakes up late for work and discovers that he has inexplicably become an adorable kitten. His family must admit that, yes, their son is now OMG so cute—but what good is cute when there are bills to pay?”
