Baking with Kafka by Tom Gauld (Hardback ISBN 9781786891501) book cover

Available as Hardback, eBook

The new collection from multi-award-winning cartoonist Tom Gauld - the perfect gift for book lovers everywhere


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.

“A collection of brilliantly off-the-wall cartoons. Ever wondered what War and Peace clickbait looks like? Or Machiavelli’s month planner? Gauld can help”
daily Mail, Best Reads Of 2017

Maria Popova

the Times

“One of the best cartoonists around!”
