This is really something: the Hamilton Public Library
has categorized as non-fiction
our book of imaginary Kafka parables, Franzlations
. As library patron Selway noted, "What higher commendation for a book of parables could there be?" This qualifies as a Retroactive Lifetime Goal (phrase used courtesy of literary humorist Jonathan Caws-Elwitt). Here's a page from Franzlations, which symbolically shows that chickens' eggs are oblong in accordance with the earth's elliptical orbit around the sun. Chickens are famously linked to the sun, as the rooster announces each dawn.
