The Cockroach  by Ian McEwan 
 Kafka’s Brexit 

This extraordianary Brexit-parody opens with a sly inversion of Kafka’s Metamorphosis as a cockroach, previously resident in the Palace of Westminster, wakes up to find himself disturbingly transformed into a human being, missing his multiple legs, his exoskeleton and his compound eyes, revolted by having a tongue and an “unsegmented thorax”.  

Topical and controversial matter
