The Third Policeman – Flann O’Brien, 1967
Bizarre. Just bizarre. Wonderfully so.
‘Flann”s fantastical book is a myriad of mad things… a detective story, a murderous thriller, a comedy of various shades, a love story that wheels off in a surprising direction, a fantasy and a confusing Irish Alice in Wonderland with some extra darkness and nonsense thrown in.
Intrigued? Read it.
Fun fact: The Third Policeman was written under a pen name. The author’s actual name was Brian O’Nolan
