BOOK CLUB | “The Third Policeman” by Flann O’Brien | Arroios | FREE

A good book usually has a good backstory. Here’s a good backstory courtesy of Wikipedia:
The Third Policeman is a novel by Irish writer Brian O’Nolan, writing under the pseudonym Flann O’Brien. It was written between 1939 and 1940, but after it initially failed to find a publisher, the author withdrew the manuscript from circulation and claimed he had lost it. The book remained unpublished at the time of his death in 1966. It was published by MacGibbon & Kee in 1967.”
51 years later, local writer and Atlas friend Peter D Murphy will be discussing said novel and its author at Bivar Books, and you’re invited to contribute.

“Anybody who has the courage to raise his eyes and look sanely at the awful human condition … must realize finally that tiny periods of temporary release from intolerable suffering is the most that any individual has the right to expect.”
― Flann O’Brien
