Sunday Times on Flann O’Brien

here. This review-in-advance of tonight’s RTE documentary celebrates “the singular vision of The Third Policeman, with its amoral murderer lost in a hellish world where garda sergeants are more bike than man, thanks to molecular exchange. It is as bleak and morbidly funny as anything by Beckett, only more recognisably Irish: hell looks alarmingly like the midlands, and all the blacker for that.”

Hat-tip to Bookslut, who reviews The Third Policeman here.

Those of you who are able to watch the documentary, please let me know what it is like!

  1. I think it is unfair on Thucydides to blame him directly. I bet most researchers in International Relations haven’t studied Thucydides, they have made their mistakes independently of him. Fairy tales are like that.
