Franz Kafka, "The Hunger Artist"`

Title pretty much says it all.

Kafka is kool. I love The Metamorphosis. The guy could write. Here we have a man who goes around displaying his fasting ability for people everywhere. It's a fascinating story because the allegorical nature of it lends itself to many interpretations. I, personally, saw a Christ figure for whom people have less and less respect and, when he's gone, are happy to move on to bigger, better things. Highly recommended.
