Kafkaesque is the new irony
I see it everywhere. Attacked, gutted and left to rot as a cliché. Most recently here. It's funny, because going on a guided tour, no matter how labyrinthian a locale it happens to be, is by definition the opposite of kafkaesque. How ironic! Anyway, to me the underground always seemed more dostoevskyian (perhaps even ellisonian) than anything else.
