Synopsis: Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman, completed in 1940, was initially rejected by his publishers for being "too fantastic", and only appeared posthumously in 1967. Since then O'Brien has achieved cult status, although critical appraisal of his work has focused almost exclusively on his first novel, At Swim Two Birds (1939).
This groundbreaking study, first published in 1995 and now substantially revised, reconfigures O'Brien as a highly subversive writer within a rich and fertile literary landscape: indisputably Irish yet distinctly post-modern. It identifies The Third Policeman as a subversive intellectual satire, in the cutting-edge tradition of Swift and Sterne, and situates it as one of the earliest – and most exciting – examples of post-modernist fiction.

From the Back Cover: Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman was written in 1940 but his publishers rejected it for being 'too fantastic'. Since its posthumous release in 1967 it has achieved cult status, although critical appraisal of his work has focused almost exclusively on At Swim-Two-Birds (1939). In this first novel O'Brien had confronted two towering traditions: the jaded legacy of Yeats' Celtic Twilight and the problematic complexities of Joyce's modernism. With The Third Policeman O'Brien forges a unique synthesis between these two traditions, and the paraliterary path he pursues marks the historical transition from modernism to post-modernism. This formalist study is a tribal retrieval of O'Brien's work which reconfigures him as a powerful voice within a dynamic and fertile landscape; indisputably Irish yet distinctly post-modern. It identifies The Third Policeman as a subversive intellectual satire, in the cutting-edge tradition of Swift and Sterne, and situates it as one of the earliest - and most exciting - examples of post-modernist fiction.
