Description

A masterpiece of black humour from the renown comic and acclaimed author of `At Swim-Two-Birds' - Flann O'Brien.A thriller, a hilarious comic satire about an archetypal village police force, a surrealistic vision of eternity, the story of a tender, brief, unrequited love affair between a man and his bicycle, and a chilling fable of unending guilt, `The Third Policeman' is comparable only to `Alice in Wonderland' as an allegory of the absurd.Distinguished by endless comic invention and its delicate balancing of logic and fantasy, `The Third Policeman' is unique in the English language.
