Kafka's Has clearly made a substantial influence on modern literature. I mean, his name in adjectival form has been incorporated into the accepted English language: Kafkaesque. Something that is Kafkaesque, in the simple sense, has a nightmarish or surreal quality. In season three of Breaking Bad, Jesse (one of the main characters) feels oppressed because the regional distributor, Gus, is making more than $96 million on the methamphetamine* that Walter and he are only earning $3 million from. He feels cheated, but Walter reminds him that he should be happy being a millionaire. Earlier in the series, Jesse's girlfriend died of an overdose-induced asphyxiation. Though he now has money, Jesse does not feel satisfied. At his rehab/therapy session, Jesse describes his situation in vague terms, and his counsellor says his life sounds Kafkaesque. Jesse continues with his life: he can't escape or Gus will kill him. He feels like he's in a nightmare.
Perhaps staying moderately happy than getting sucked (rather involuntarily) into the world of intense drug trafficking. Similarly, it is evident in Kafka's Metamorphosis that Gregor would prefer to be a human than a vermin (though he does not show that in Part 1).
I neither support nor recommend a job in the drug trade. Carry on now!
