A graphic adaptation of Franz Kafka’s famous novel illustrated by Chantal Montellier, one of France’s leading graphic artists. The Trial is the darkly humorous tale of Joseph K, who is arrested one morning for unexplained reasons and who struggles against a bewildering and absurd judicial process. K finds himself thrown from one disorientating encounter to the next as he becomes increasingly desperate to prove his innocence in the face of unknown charges. In its stark portrayal of an authoritarian bureaucracy trampling over the lives of its estranged citizens, The Trial is as relevant today as it has ever been. Chantal Montellier brilliantly captures both the menace and the humor of Kafka’s utterly unique masterwork.
