Coinciding with the one hundredth anniversary of one of the most surprising works by contemporary icon Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis (1915), Reeko celebrates the novella or adult fairy tale with his own reinterpretation of Kafka's controversial narration. The author offers a first person account of the protagonist Gregor Samsa's transmutation; a human just like any other, with a grey, predictable and routine existence.

We bear witness to his dehumanisation, we feel every trace of humanity dissolve in the cold blood of the new being that is coming to life: an insect man, a new circumstance that will affect the way he sees the reality he thought he knew and the world that seemed to him rigid and unchangeable.
