Baking with Kafka
By (author) Tom Gauld
In Baking with Kafka, Tom Gauld asks the questions no one else dares ask about civilisation as we know it. – How do you get published during a skeleton apocalypse? – What was the secret of Kafka’s lemon drizzle cake? – And what plot possibilities does the exploding e-cigarette offer modern mystery writers? A riotous collection of laugh-out-loud cartoons in his signature style, Baking with Kafka reaffirms Gauld’s position as a first-rate cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history.
