  • One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that he had been changed into an adorable kitten.

    The phenomenal success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies inspired a massively popular literary-remix movement. Now Quirk Classics once again charts bold new territory, turning the monster-mash-up formula inside out to infuse Franz Kafka's horrific masterpiece, "The Metamorphosis," with the fuzziest, snuggliest, most adorable creatures possible: kittens!

    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? How can Gregor be so selfish as to devote his attention to a ball of yarn? And how dare he jump out the bedroom window to wander through Kafka's literary landscape? Never before has a cat's tale been so poignant, strange, and horrifyingly funny.

  • What? You heard me.

    If you’ve taken a peek at our Fall 2011 catalog, you might have spotted a particularly quirky title… Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat.

    Originally released in Japan, we’re bringing it stateside in the Fall. It’s the perfect book for you craft-loving cat owners with sweaters and couches covered in fur. Pick up that lint roller, collect some hair, and get to making tote bags, finger puppets, picture frames, and more.

    The book doesn’t hit stores until November… but editor Margaret McGuire and designer Katie Hatz have already begun crafting. One of them doesn’t even own a cat, and I’m not at liberty to divulge where she’s been collecting the animal fur… though it may involve a Mission Impossible-esque cable drop scenario.

    However with all the crafting they’ve been doing, there just isn’t enough cat hair. And that’s where you come in.
