Orcas Island’s “eNotations” publishes fifth electronic book

The Orcas Island publishing company eNotations, captained by John Ashenhurst, Chris Thomerson and David Sarver, has announced the publication of its fifth book, “The eNotated Metamorphosis.”

Jens Kruse, part-time Orcas resident and Professor of German at Wellesley, served as the book’s eNotator.

“The Metamorphosis” is a classic of Western literature and one of its most read books; fascinating, absorbing, and easy to read – but very difficult to understand,” said Ashenhurst. “Jens has done a wonderful job connecting passages in the text with Kafka’s life and times in 1912, pointing out themes most readers would likely miss, and generally providing a rich context within which to approach the book.”

The eNotated version also includes an extensive Kafka biography, timeline, reading list, essays and illustrations. All the additional information is accessed through links embedded in the ‘pages’ of the book.

“The eNotated Metamorphosis” is available through the Amazon Kindle catalog and can be read on any device that runs Kindle software, such as Kindle, iPod, iPad, iPhone, Mac, PC, most Android devices.
