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.



Tom Gauld was born in 1976 and grew up in Aberdeenshire. He is a cartoonist and illustrator and makes weekly cartoons for The Guardian and New Scientist. He created the comic books ‘Goliath’, ‘You’re All Just Jealous of my Jetpack’ and ‘Mooncop’. His latest book of cartoons is “Baking with Kafka”. He lives in London with his family.
