Summary
Kafka's "Metamorphosis" is turned on its antennae in this roaringly entertaining noir novel. Knox's debut begins with a cockroach waking up to find he has been transformed into a man. Kockroach, however, doesn't lapse into despair, but instead demonstrates the relentless survival instinct of his species by learning how to get by in the human world. Helping him is pint-size Times Square hustler Mickey "Mite" Pimelia
Summary
When a 1950s cockroach awakens only to discover that he has been transformed into a human being, he awkwardly learns human skills while wondering how his primitive insect desires and amorality will mesh with the values of people
