Twin Peaks Backstory Investigations, The Metamorphosis, Written by Franz Kafka (1915)

This article concludes my Twin Peaks Backstory Investigations series. This time I’m going to change the medium, shifting from films that are significant to characters or creators to the print literature work that David Lynch has named as a favorite from Eraserhead-days interviews to the present.
