"Is it about a bicycle?" The Third Policeman is Flann O'Brien (aka Myles Na gCopaleen aka Brian O'Nolan's) masterpiece. Gogol-meets-Kafka-meets-Carroll, this novel brings the reader into a purgatorial comedy of sexy bicycles, faux philosophers and one-legged murders. Despite O'Brien's debut novel being heralded by the likes of Graham Greene, The Third Policeman only managed to be published posthumously.  This book will make you "...completely half afraid to think.”
