The Trial (German: Der Process) is a novel by Franz Kafka about a character named Josef K., who awakens one morning and, for reasons never revealed, is arrested and prosecuted for an unspecified crime.
According to Kafka's friend Max Brod, the author never finished the novel and wrote in his will that it was to be destroyed. After his death, Brod went against Kafka's wishes and edited The Trial into what he felt was a coherent novel and had it published in 1925.

About the Author

Franz Kafka was one of the major German-language fiction writers
of the 20th century. A middle-class Jew based in Prague, his unique
body of writing — many incomplete and most published posthumously —
has become amongst the most influential in Western literature.
Kafka's works – including the stories Das Urteil (1913, "The
Judgement"), In der Strafkolonie (1920, "In the Penal Colony"); the
novella Die Verwandlung ("The Metamorphosis"); and unfinished
novels Der Prozess ("The Trial") and Das Schloß ("The Castle") –
have come to embody the blend of absurd, surreal and mundane which
gave rise to the adjective "kafkaesque".
