NEW ARRIVAL: FLANN O'BRIEN


FLANN O'BRIEN "The Third Policeman" Illustrated by David Eccles
(Hardcover, Illustrated Boards, in Slipcase) Folio Society $95.00


Ulysses meets Jules Verne. Or perhaps a bitter, drunken Raymond Roussel, who smells a bit, and who can't be bothered with the details (yeh, I know, it's all about the details), and would much rather sit at the end of the bar and talk and talk and talk until everyone either gets pissed off, or wets their pants laughing. Sounds more like Jarry now that I think of it, but not quite. Hell, the guy's got a voice like no one else. Three or four actually. One of my favorite writers, and I have no idea what his real name is and don't much care either.
